The Republic of Namibia, formerly known as South West Africa, was first inhabited by humans almost 2000 years ago, mainly the San, Damara and Nama peoples. In the 14th century CE, Bantu peoples moved into the area. These were followed by the Orlam in the 18th century. In the 19th century till World War I, Namibia was a German colony and after that it was mandated to South Africa by the League of the Nations. Namibia gained its independence from South Africa in 1990 and since then the country is slowly moving towards socio-economic development and political stability.
Nowadays, Namibia has the second-lowest population density of any sovereign country, after Mongolia. The majority of Namibians are Bantu (diverse tribes), but Herero, Himba, Damara and Khoisan (Nama and San) peoples also dwell in the country. Furthermore, Namibia has citizens of European descent (Whites: 6.4% of the population): mainly Afrikaner German, British and Portuguese. Namibians mostly speak Afrikaans, imported language from the Republic of South Africa. This diversity of peoples is associated with a wide variety of clothing from 19th-century European adapted to the Herero style (with cow-horn hat) to very basic clothes made of leather as worn by the early peoples of the area 2000 years ago (San and Nama). I could not find any traditional costumes for the Whites of Namibia, but I assume that they are similar to the ones used in South Africa (see South Africa).
