Kikoys made in Kenya

A Kikoy is a traditional sarong or ‘wrap’ and considered the East African equivalent of a kilt. As they wear and wear the cotton becomes softer and softer. The loose weave of the Kikoy just lends itself to become a well-worn security blanket of notable comfort. Each Kikoy is unique in that the looms are threaded by craftsmen who make their Kikoys rather like a Persian carpet, with a minute difference in each batch of looming. Kikoys are made from 100% soft cotton, grown in East Africa and spun in Kenya. The yarn is dyed with eco-certified dyes.
