The most colourful part of Venda women’s clothing is the upper garment made from multi-coloured striped cloth called ‘wenda. It is a length of cloth with a strip (bannda) sewn on across the top and two straps (mivhofho) of the same cloth to tie over the shoulder.

A traditional garment which was worn only by married women, is a goat skin apron called tshirivha, covering the back and front. On special occasions, married women used to wear a ceremonial back apron made of sheepskin called gwana. Today, a similar garment is made of ‘wenda cloth. Maredo, worn by young females, are narrow strips of cloth hanging between the legs over a girdle in the front and back. Bracelets and necklaces of twisted grass called vhukunda were worn by females for decoration. Young women also wore pieces of copper twisted round a string of cotton, called thuthu or shedo, round the ankles and wrists.
