Beaded Xhosa Pipe
The traditional Xhosa wooden pipes are made from wood and then beaded. The traditional beadwork colours are red, white, blue and black, you may however request any other colour of beadwork. The men’s pipe is shorter, whilst the women’s pipe is longer. Traditionally this is so that when a woman breastfeeds the smoke from the pipe does not go near the baby’s face.
