The Himba are a tribe of nomadic people who live in the Kaokoland area of Namibia. They wear bangles made from decorated PVC piping as part of their traditional dress. The origin of this tradition stems from the materials resemblance to ivory, which was used in former times when elephants roamed Namibia in Large numbers. Zenzele buys these products with the help of an Arts Trust Project, promoting sustainable development of this indigenous tribe.
