Constantine: Actually guntiino is only worn in weddings and special events alone.

Gunito are worn on everyday and all occasions. Where you wear guntino usally depends on the style and material/fabric it is made of. In Southern Somalia, and largely in Kenya, Somali women still, till today, wear guntino every day in a casually.


Casual Guntino worn every day!





The ones worn on weddings

What? Similar to the sari? It's a lot less revealing than that.

The real traditional Somali attires are those white nomadic clothes. The other ones are more recent additions, inspired by Middle Eastern/Indian textiles.

Typical nomadic supremacy that supersedes all the other many layers of Somali culture, be it urban, coastal or sedentary, smh. Somalia has a textile culture spanning a thousand years, the colors and fabrics clad and adorned by Somalis predates the cheap imports brought by 19th century Bani traders from India, and remember it was us who exported our textiles to Egypt, Damascus and Jerusalem, not the other way around.

Ditto...somali people tend to have this mind set that the only culture in somalia is nomadic culture, which is far from the thruth. I guess its down to a lack of knowledge.

+ 1.

In fact these cave paintings outside Hargeisa, dating from 8-9,000 BCE depict locals in elaborate ceremonial robes.

Question: Do rich Somalis dress like Europeans/Americans, or is there an affluent variant of the traditional dress?
