African Kikoy (Kikoi) Towel - Sarong or Throw in Black with Red Broad Stripe
KIKOY TOWEL - New to our range for 2014, we are introducing the KIKOY TOWEL from Kenya. The versatile, everlasting Kikoy now comes with a towel lining and is the perfect item for your beach or pool holiday. Wear it as a sarong but let it dry you at the same time; Kikoys are the ultimate in African accessories. Not only ideal for wearing as a sarong on the beach, they also double up as a scarf, tablecloth, picnic rug, beach wrap, bedspread, or colourful furniture throw. Kikoys are multi-functioning as both a garment/cloth and fantastic for back-packers or anyone who needs to travel light; they have adorned many generations of East Africans and were once used as a unit of currency for the people of the Kenyan coast and interior. Made in Africa for Africa, they are now much sought after worldwide.
These brand new Kikoy Towels from Kenya come in a variety of bright or darker colours, 100% lightweight soft cotton and of the traditional size of 171cm (66”) x 104cm (40”) with hand-knotted fringe. Eco-certified dyes from Europe ensure a colour fastness that can be washed time and time again; the towel lining has also been checked for colour fastness to ensure your Kikoy Towel looks great for wash after wash and for many years ahead.
