  1. Pakistan

The traditional sari and shalwar kameez are both worn in Pakistan. The shalwar kameez is worn commonly by everyone, including the Punjabi. Saris are most common in the cities and are worn mostly by the Muslims and Hindus.

Sari and shalwar kameez are cotton lightly draped around the body. They are cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India, and Nepal also wear a sari.

  1. Maasai of Kenya

The Maasai are also in Tanzania. Before the 1960s, they commonly wear animal skins that were dyed in different colours. However, in recent times, they wear clothes with all sorts of colours and patterns.

Flowery-patterned clothes are worn by both men and women. The most common of them is kanga, which is a one-piece.

Also, they were beaded jewelry and each colour has a different meaning. For example, red colour means warrior or brave and white colour means peace.

In those days, the beads were made out of clay, bone, seeds, etc. but now, the beads are mostly made out of glass.

  1. Madagascar

Lamba is an outfit that the people of Madagascar wear. It is more traditional to see elderly men and men living outside of urban areas wearing it. Women commonly wear the lamba.

In those days, the lamba was usually worn alone but in recent times, it is usually worn over western clothing.

Apart from wearing the lamba, it also has a different meaning. To the people of Madagascar, it serves as protection from wind or dust, carrying a child, the sun, a covering when going to swim or bathing, etc. it is also worn for funerals and ceremonies.

We cannot say how much longer the lamba will be used as the people of Madagascar are embracing a more westernized outfit.
