Traditional Attires South Africa (TASA) is a project implemented by the Association For Non Profit Organisation NPO.ORG.ZA.

The purpose of this project is to create a collective international link platform whereby the garments, attires or traditional clothing can be exposed openly. TASA also intend to make this an eye opening medium where this kind of art and dressing have been forgotten or overlooked even by local caltural people.

TASA also wish to extend to our local people male and female, the spirit of dressing in caltural attires not only on specific occassion or on caltural days, but through the year and on any general moment.

We also wish to remove the fear and shyness from our people when to it come to wearing their traditional attires.
At least out of the ten western attires in a person's wardrobe, one should be his her tradition attire in stock.

Our traditional garments designers are so much hard at work creating these garments, but they are still highly isolated for the reason that we tend to despise our caltural clothing, by shifting all the focus on mordern clothing.

TASA also whish to work hand in hand with traditional clothing designers where by together we can showcase this art and creativity by combining the designer's garments and TASA models to expose the beauty, talent, creativity, art and the impact our traditional attiries has on the international and local front.
It has been noted and proven that the traditional garments can bond very well in a artistic design way, where they are mixed with western fashion clothing.

How ever even so, it is still belived that, fashion clothing that has a dash of South Africal Tradition attire should only be worn on special occasions, not on a normal working day or on a trip to a movie or mall.
EXPOSURE - Attires and Models
The task of TASA is to make a combination of traditional attire and a model jointly to create further awareness of this forgotten kind of dressing.

By this combination TASA creates a data base of collective images (model type) which can be used as a marketing medium by designers, advertisers, artists, publishers, web developers and the business as a whole.

Western type of modelling dominates in South Africa, TASA takes this step to remind the market that tradition atiires will make a big impact in the world of marketing and advetising.

TASA has thus made these images be available Royalty Free.
