Kangas, the colourful covers of the women of Zanzibar, take up art, beauty and tradition in the culture of Swahili. The Kanga is a very colourful printed cotton fabric. The Kanga is of different strength. Kanga "Nzito"-is called a somewhat firmer and "heavy" Kanga.

* * Kangas are about 1.04 m at 1.72 m per half/. (Total length from 3 m to 3.50 m) * *
* * This weighs about 225gr. per half/piece. * *

They come directly from Tanzania and Zanzibar. The Kangas are always made in pairs. There is a fringe, a middle section and a saying. Sits of Kangas are common about relationships and feelings of love and envy, or allude to social, cultural and political problems. This Kanga has no saying!! It is worn to weddings in Zanzibar.
The pattern repeats itself after half, so the fabric is also divisible. The pages are not cleaned up. I sell them both individually and as a couple. The fabric is made of pure cotton and it is slightly translucent. The pattern and the colours are equally recognizable and visible on both sides.

* * This kanga shows 3 parts: The two patterned parts on the side are 52.5 cm wide and the center piece with the plus signs is 47.5 cm wide. * *

Kangas can be used for clothing, table towels, wall hangings, carrier towels or beach towels.
