Sourced in Africa - Made in Africa has been the inspiration around adding to the Cannibal Clothing range with fabrics, household items and clothing based on the fabulous 100% cotton kikoi fabrics from Tanzania.
These products are to be traded under the African brand name KIBOKO KHAYA – which translates to “Home of the Hippo” which is a spot of paradise in the Limpopo Province, on the Olifants River, that added to our inspiration in carry these fantastic products.
Being based in Africa and proud of its products and people, it has been great to get involved in local produce. The kikoi fabrics are loom woven in the old traditional way using 100% local Tanzanian cotton to create these vibrant and dynamic fabrics. Each kikoi is then finished off with plaiting, by hand, to create the tasseled edging.
We have then taken the process one step further by creating a range of products, using the fabulous kikoi’s and kikoi fabrics – all of which are designed and made locally by ladies in Cape Town, South Africa.
The product list to date includes gloriously woven kikoi’s, toweling lined beach towels, sling bags, aprons, scarves and much more...
