NASTAHAMILI MAOVU MANENO HAYANA KOVU

This kanga is an older one that was loaned to me by a friend. It is a “kanga nyepesi” made from very light weight cotton. Purchased in Tanzania sometime in the 1990’s, it was likely imported from Kenya or India. The design and colors are very traditional, especially on the coast.
