Kenyan Kitenge Shirts
Handcrafted by Kenyan mothers belonging to the programme Hope Designers, these comfortable Kenyan Kitenge Shirts feature African wax print that boldly embodies African heritage.
Both men and women love these Kenyan Kitenge Shirts for their uniqueness and comfort. These tops are made of 100% cotton, allowing for easy wash-and-wear care. Two useful pockets have been added to these hippie style blouses, allowing you to carry your small items with you on-the-go. These African print shirts are conveniently “one size fits most”. The patterns and colors will vary slightly from piece to piece, making for a truly unique shirt.
Celebrating African heritage
With this brightly colored shirt, you will get a look that screams Africa! Great for any African heritage party or festival, the adaptable top would also be ideal at the occasion of Black History Month to celebrate African-American history in style. You could also just wear the shirt anytime you need to feel cozy yet fancy, and willing to show your attachment to Kenyan traditions or to Africa in general. Indeed, Kitenge, the colorful African print featured throughout the shirt, is highly associated with African culture. It is traditionally worn by women in West, Central, and East Africa, serving as an informal and multipurpose garment often decorated with a huge variety of colors, patterns and even hidden meanings or political slogans.
