About Kikoys

 

Kikoys have been worn in Kenya and the East African region for centuries.  Originally worn by fishermen, the kikoy used to be a simple white wrap-around with colored stripes or striped borders.  The modern kikoy’s color pallet personifies vivacious Kenyan culture, and is gaining global appeal as a fashion accessory.

 

Our Selection

These kikoys are ethically produced in Kenyan factories that provide fair working wages and a modernized, clean, and safe working environment.  Authentic kikoys, like ours, are woven out of dyed cotton yarn. The interplay of  warp and weft yarn colors create a complexity not possible with printed designs. The fringes on the kikoy are meticulously hand-braided in a traditional manner.

Fun

Kikoys can be used as scarves (great with a pair of jeans), beach wraps/cover ups, baby slings, beach towels/throws, nursing drapes, and much more. Kikoys only get softer and comfier with each use and wash, and more distinctly yours. A great gift for those from Venus or Mars.
