Everywhere you go in East Africa, you will see Kangas/Leso - a brightly coloured, rectangle of printed fabric with a Swahili saying. They are a vibrant part of daily life, used to carry babies, and layered as clothing. A Kanga carries great significance, as it marks the rhythm of Swahili life even from birth.

This Kanga is from Mombasa Kenya, and made from East African produced cotton.  It was purchased from a women owned small business in Tanzania during recent visit.  The blanket has been backed with super soft minky fleece. It features handmade organic cotton tassels, and has been top stitched together.

Please note colours may appear differently in photographs than on actual item. Due to the nature of this item it can contain small misprints and small weaving faults
