About Kikoys & Wraps:
Call it a Kikoy, sarong, pareo, lava lava or a lungi. Rectangular in shape, kikoys make ideal beach cover-ups. Worn as a skirt, the ends of the kikoy are simply tucked in at the waist - no buttons, pins or hooks. They can be worn by men, women, children. It's all up to how creative you can be. There are many uses of the kikoy wrap - from Sarong to scarf, tablecloths to throws, beach-blankets to sun shield. All our 100% mercerized cotton kikoys are dyed and woven in Kenya, and then hand-knotted to create the distinctive border, which adds to their individual appeal. Available in a rainbow of colours, and a choice of striped pattern or plain , their use is only limited by your imagination.
