Made in Africa for Africa, they are now much sought after worldwide. Every woman and man should own a Kikoy - not only ideal for wearing as a sarong on the beach, they also double up as a scarf, tablecloth, picnic rug, beach towel, bedspread, or colourful furniture throw. In beautiful sunny colours, Kikoys have adorned many past generations of East Africans for whom these prized textiles were also once used as a unit of currency. All Kikoys measure 171cm x 104cm and they are made from 100% lightweight soft cotton yarn which has been grown and spun in Kenya. Each Kikoy is unique in that the looms are threaded by craftsmen, who make their Kikoys rather like a Persian carpet, with minute differences in each batch of looming. Once woven, each Kikoy is then finished with a hand-knotted fringe. Kikoys are made using European dyes and, as such, are guaranteed to be colour fast on a low/med temperature wash. Your Kikoy will also come with its its own label of authenticity and information leaflet. To see the wonderful rainbow of colours available, please click on 'other shop listings'!
