khanga wear

Just a glimpse of a new style. Colorful khanga from Kenya transformed into a beautiful tunic. The sleeves are bias cut for movement and flow.



Cutting khanga is not an easy task because the fabric is not wide and most of the time the design has a thick edge that has to be incorporated into the piece.
It takes planning and a careful hand to cut it right and allow the beauty of all the design to come to life in the garment.



To complete the look I am also making khanga necklaces and accessories. More to come...
