BIN-ADAMU SIKAMILI

I can’t figure out if this yellow and black kanga is made in Zanzibar or if it is imported from India. It is made by Sycamore Trade Adventures and the sticker says, “Marashi Ya Zanzibar” which means “The Scent of Zanzibar.” In either case it is very pretty and very light. Called “kanga nyepesi,” these thin kangas are very nice to wear in the warm weather. I have already had this one hemmed, so that I can wear it as a wrap or scarf. With its beautiful design and universal saying, I cannot wait to wear it!
