FAQ

What Exactly is Kitenge / African Print Fabric?

Kitenge or chitenge is a garment similar to a sarong, worn in many African countries, often by women wrapped around the chest or waist, over the head as a headscarf or as a baby sling - or made in to tradition or modern garments. 

Kitenges are similar to kangas and kikoy, but are of a thicker cloth and have an edging only on a long side. 

 

What is a Yard?

A yard is the imperial measurement still traditionally used for textiles.  One yard is nearly 91.5cm.

How do I Care for my African Print Fabric?

Pre-wash before using (machine wash 30°-40° according to preference). You can machine wash at 30°-40° many times but do not soak, and use non-chlorine bleach, low tumble dry, and cool iron.

 

Do you have a Quality Guarantee? 

We buy our fabric at local market and to make sure the fabric we offer are always top of the top, we take a sample of each single design through our quality control process, that includes washing, ironing and "handling" to make sure that shrinkage is within ordinary acceptable levels and that the fabric is colourfast (assuming you follow our care recommendations - see above).
