THE SALOUVA MAHORAIS

The salouva is an elegant outfit for the quintessential Mahorese woman. It is a large cotton tube tied around the chest and falling to the feet. For others, the salouva consists of 2 parts: a large piece of fabric sewn on one side that the woman puts on and ties at the level of the chest, and the kishali, a shawl worn on the head or on the shoulders.


We wear it on all occasions: weddings, funerals, cultural events ... and also on Fridays! Wearing it on a Friday to go to work is like a kind of tradition within a tradition.


M'sinzano (paste made from sandalwood) is very common for sun protection. It can be worn as a full face mask or as delicate decorations to highlight the fine features of the face.
