Historically, the Kikoy (also spelt Kikoi), is a traditional hand-woven East African garment worn by fishermen in Kenya and Tanzania. Kikoy is made from 100% cotton that is grown and harvested in East Africa. The woven fabric is dyed with bright, azo free dyes, resulting in a traditional sarong with vibrant colors that represent the spirit of the East African people. Today, kikoy is still hand-loomed, though it is often machine-loomed to increase quality and production quantities. The distinctive kikoy tassels continue to be hand-knotted by artisans.
