Igbo Men’s George Wrapper Cultural Attire for Traditional Wedding and Special Events
The Igbo men’s ‘wrapper with shirt’ cultural attire is one that is very unique and different (in a nice way), and is one of the ways that Igbo grooms dress to express their identity and culture during their traditional engagement (Igba Nkwu ceremony). ‘George’ is the cultural wrapper attire of the Igbo men (and women) – plain or beaded/ embellished – usually worn to occasions and by celebrants of weddings, cultural events and other types of special parties. That is aside from the ‘Isi Agu’ men’s shirt (also a cultural attire) that is worn on trousers.
Thanks to social media, we’re seeing more and more Igbo grooms with their brides choosing to rock the plain george as well as beaded/ embellished george coordinated look.
The internet is the primary source of inspiration for couples when choosing what to wear for their traditional wedding (Igba Nkwu, in this case). It’s sad that there aren’t as many pictures of this Igbo men’s ‘george wrapper with shirt attire’ on the internet for inspiration to intending couples. Hopefully, this post will inspire grooms preparing for their ‘Igba Nkwu’/ customary marriage introduction and traditional wedding ceremony.
