Season 2 Episode 4

There’s no major differentiation in the traditional attires of the tribes in Malawi although there is a format for the country’s National Dress.


The men of Malawi have no particular national dress as they wear mainly western clothings.

Men can be found wearing mostly western-styled clothing such as jean, pants, shirts, shorts and sometimes suits for occasions. 


The women of Malawi put on a traditional wear which is called Chitenje (pronounced chi-ten-jay) which is similar to a large skirt which is worn with a blouse and sometimes a head tie.
