Scarves made from kikois
The traditional Kenyan kikoi is now made into a variety of other products, in this case comfortable cotton scarves
Handbags and beach bags made from kikois
Here the kikoi has been transformed into handbags and beach/shopping bags. All fully lined, with an inside pocket. The handbags zip shut, and have a floral zip-pull made from telephone wire. Handmade in Kenya for Bazaar Africa.
Kenyan kikois have a number of uses – sarongs, beach wraps, throws, tablecloths, curtains – the list goes on. Very traditional and very East African.
