Print Story Card


Join a Swahili tradition with your own colorful kanga shopping bag. Kanga cloth evolved among former slaves in East Africa in the early 1900s. As a bright form of self-expression, it includes patterns and messages that are a form of cultural communication between women, commenting on their lives and relationships. Kanga cloth embodies freedom and self-expression. It is used for bags, carrying children, tablecloths and wall hangings. The kanga is a cornerstone of Swahili life.
