ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Kila Kitu Kikoy translates to ‘Everything Kikoy’ in Swahili. We are a family run business in Harare , Zimbabwe that sell a range of authentic kikoy clothing which is exclusively made in Kenya .
A Kikoy is a beautiful piece of colourful woven cotton that is rectangular in shape. It was possibly adapted from something Arab traders wore as they walked the coastline in East Africa. It has developed its very own character in Kenya and Tanzania and is a symbol of safari in these two countries.
Kikoy’s are specially woven with 100% mercerised cotton, this brings an added softness which will comfort you on the beach, at home, anywhere!
Though kikoys are traditionally worn as sarongs, these versatile beach wraps can be used trousers, skirts, shorts , towels – take a look at the wide range of fantastic clothing options we have on offer
As a born and raised mother and daughter from Kenya , We have always loved the local Kikoy materials. We have many memories visiting the shops in Mombasa buying all sorts of Kikoy clothing to wear on the beach , farm, on safari or in Nairobi. Once we moved to Zimbabwe, we treasured the little Kikoy clothing we had left . You could find some Kikoy clothing in Zimbabwe but none was of the quality and heritage of Kenya. So as a team we recently decided to start Kila-kitu Kikoy , a small business that sells a wide variety of Kenyan clothing and accessories.
