  1. These are individual community/cultural dress forms, not national. Herero are a tribe. The Hindu and their Dhoti are a tribe/religious community, the Ashanti in Ghana are a tribe. Dominance if such communities in their countries by way of numbers does not make their dress forms national. The Madibal shirt in South Africa is an individual dress form choice. It’s not national. Please stop lying. We have also travelled.
