Nandi Head Wrap


The vibrant orange and turquoise of the Nandi head wrap evoke strength and beauty. Nandi, whose name means "a woman of high esteem," was born in South Africa in the 1760s. She is the mother of Shaka Zulu, who was one of the greatest Zulu chiefs and African military leaders. Nandi's close relationship with her son, Shaka, gave her unheard-of power. Under Shaka's rule, the Zulu became a powerful, even legendary, military force, some 40,000 strong; his establishment of all-female regiments was because of the example set for him by his warrior-mother.
