For this simple version of the kikoy: one side in 100% combed cotton, hand woven in East Africa.
In Kenya, a kikoy is multifunctional (baby carrier, pareo, light blanket, big scarf...), but here it will mainly be used as a spa towel or pareo. But nothing is stopping you from using it as you want; the quality of the cotton is such that you can use it for all sorts of things.
Machine washable at 40°C. Dryer OK.
what is Kikoi?
Kikoi or Kikoy means sarong, or traditional skirt, in Swahili: in the beginning it was a traditional Kenyan fabric hand woven by men from the best East African cotton, edged with handmade fringes. Used at first as a sarong or a cover, its brilliant colours, its versatility, and its superb design made it into a veritable ambassador of East African craftsmanship throughout the world: beach towels, scarves, pareos, picnic blankets, the kikoi can do anything.
The Kikoi towel is a true favorite of the whole LaPaDD family. In fact, we've been using them for several years. Even though they are African, we discovered them in Spain in 2007. A message to those who, like us, like well-made things: to try it is to adopt it (at our house, each family member has his or her own and no one shares).
In this simple version of the kikoy: one side only, 100% combed cotton, hand woven in East Africa.
compact and light: no heavier than your wallet. When its rolled up, it is so inconspicuous it almost disappears.
ultra practical: your Kikoy bath towel can also be used as a beach towel, pareo, summer cover-up for the kids, shawl, throw, turban, big scarf, or even a hammock or baby carrier (for the last two usages, please be careful: when in doubt, abstain).
colourful: the Kikoy's brilliant colours are irresistible. It comes in taupe (sand stripes), white (pink stripes), dark khaki (navy blue stripes) mauve (turquoise stripes). Something to suit the tastes of everyone in the family...
solid: we have subjected our kikois to our washer and dryer for three years and they are in great shape, and their bright colours are still intact.
