Made from 100% cotton, these kikoys are dyed, woven, and the tassels hand-tied in Kenya, giving you an authentic, African-produced item you can wear with pride. The cotton is mercerised, which gives it added strength and contributes to the brightness of the colours. The weave gives it the desired opacity for wear as a skirt or dress and means you can wear it as a scarf when it's chilly.
Suitable for men, women, and children, the possibilities are endless when it comes to the uses for your kikoy. Worn as a sarong or wrap, top or dress, the kikoy can be tied and worn in a number of different ways and in any number of locations. Its practicality extends beyond fashion to include home decor and a range of inventive uses - it all depends on your creativity.
