For Sarongs & Kikoys Think Kasuku Kikoy!

Vibrantly coloured sarongs, kikoys and kangas have adorned generations of East Africans: for many centuries these prized textiles were a unit of currency, used by the peoples of the coast and interior. Now Kasuku Kikoy is offering these versatile beachwear garments to people everywhere. Made in Africa for Africa they are already much sought after worldwide.

Striped woven kikoys were traditionally worn by Swahili sailors plying the Indian Ocean. The Swahili people continue to wear them for any occasion but now they are also worn by men and women all around Kenya and beyond.

Though kikoys are principally worn as sarongs, they can be used as scarves, pyjamas, for cheering up a room, or as a turban....let your imagination run.

To keep in step with the summer fashion needs of today Kasuku have taken the traditional kikoy and added a brilliant range of colours. The specially woven fabric which is 100% mercerised Mercerization is a continuous chemical process used for cotton and cotton/polyester goods to increase dyeability, luster and appearance. This process, which is carried out at room temperature, causes the flat, twisted ribbon-like cotton fiber to swell into a round shape and to contract in length. This causes the fiber to become more lustrous than the original fiber, increase in strength by as much as 20 percent, and increase its affinity for dyes. Mercerizing typically follows singeing and may either precede or follow bleaching (Corbman, 1975) cotton, brings a softness which will give you comfort on the beach, at home, anywhere.
