Predominantly from the east Afrikan coastal strip
It is both influenced by Arabic, German, and of course the Bantu Cultures
Famous for the colorful prints and designs, it is manufactured from 100% cotton. It is a soft fabric that befriends the skin.
Worn for all occasions, the Khanga is best known to be a woman’s best friend… it is flexible and has a myriad uses which not only enhance a woman’s beauty but is also a medium of communication.
Our equivalent to Victoria’s Secret lingerie
– is, of course, the khanga • appropriately worded and incensed the woman of quality has her own collection
which could be inherited from generations of mothers…passed down to daughters and their daughters
As a means of communication. the husband knows not to beat or punch a wayward wife but kindly/passionately thrash her with a beautiful khanga that will carry or depict harsh words admonishing her… the receiving wife will naturally reciprocate by pleasing her husband with apologetic messages on a khanga of course… and other
pleasures… that… we all can imagine!!!
Wedding & Funerals
At weddings, funerals… events/occasions the khanga plays a big role … different wraps define the event or occasion
In the 21st century… we bring it to the boardroom… and ballrooms… not to be left out, we make it elegant and sophisticated -· in its simplicity of origin, it bears a lot of classical beauty… because it is a faithful servant to a graceful creature, the woman!!! In her beauty and originality, dignity, and versatility.
