Both Kanga and Kitenge are an indispensible aspect of traditional African clothing. While Kitenge is exclusively worn by women, wrapped around the chest or waist, as a baby sling or over the head, Kanga is an African Costume worn by both men and women.

With their presence as an Ethnic African Attire in most of the parts of Africa, these clothes are vibrant in colour schemes with different patterns on them, the printing of which is done by the African Traditional Batik method. Kangas are often called Lesos in some regions.

Kanga cloth specially contains a strip on the edge of it which has a learning or message written in Swahii language or sometimes in Arabic too. These are being worn in both daily lives as well as traditional African functions & festivities.
