Introduction:

Printed instead of woven, there are many designs to the Kangas, all of which include a Swahili proverb. Bright and beautiful, Kangas have a range of uses, from wraps to curtains – the choice is yours.

Made from 100% cotton in Kenya, the material of the Kanga is as soft and light as the Marini range, with an airy, natural drape. What makes the Kanga range stand out are the patterns and they are famous for their print. Printed rather than woven, each Kanga has a Swahili proverb - "Asemae Hajapata, Aliyepaya Hasemi" - "He who says does not have, he who has does not say". The Kanga has fringes on two ends, making them even more fascinating, and these fringes are hand-tied.

Whether bought as a gift or for yourself, Kanga kikoys are a true interest piece and can be enjoyed on travels, as home decor items, at the beach, or as a daily fashion accessory. Wrapped and knotted as a skirt or floaty trousers, worn with a sarong clasp, or simply worn as a scarf, its versatility translates into many years of use in a host of different ways.
