Zulu Love Letters are African Beaded messages given by Zulu maidens to their lovers as symbols of their love and affection, each bead color of the Zulu Love Letter conveys a different message. Zulu Love Letters can be custom made to incorporate company colors.
WHITE: symbol of hope, purity, cleanliness and true love. BLACK: grief, loneliness, my heart has turned as black as the rafters in the hut as I hear you have another maiden. YELLOW: wealth (or lack of) if we marry I will be hungry as you own no bull to slaughter. GREEN: love sickness, jealousy, I have become as thin as a blade of grass from pining for you. BLUE: faithfulness, if I were a dove I would fly through blue skies to reach you. TURQUOISE: impatience, I am losing hope that you will marry me. RED: intense love, longing, my heart bleeds with love for you. PINK: abject poverty, if you keep on gambling and wasting money, you will never save enough for my Lobola (dowry paid in cattle). BROWN: my love is like the earth that gives rise to new life. STRIPED BEADS: doubt, accusations, two timing. You are like the Ntothoviyane (striped grass hopper) springing from bush to bush.
