MaXhosa | Justina Blakeney

I’m enamored with the collections of South African knitwear designer Laduma Ngxokolo. His line, MaXhosa was designed as a knitwear solution to Xhosa initiation rights, that includes a tradition of dressing up in “new dignified formal clothing for six months after initiation.” He incorporates traditional Xhosa beadwork craft, patterns, symbolism and colors into his modern knitwear collection. Gorgeous, yes?

Photographer: Brent Stirton. The Xhosa people of South Africa are probably best known for their most famous son, Nelson Mandela, but many Xhosa live far from the modern world, deep in the Transkei region on the country’s Eastern Cape. This picture captures the most important adventure in these boys’ lives – their initiation into manhood, which involves five weeks of isolation
