Kenyatta Blue Shell Kimono

Regular price $199.00
Each of our kimonos tells a story about how it changed, from Kenya to Barcelona and now to you, where it will become part of the story you create. Wear this one-of-a-kind Kimono in the Diani Beach motif over jeans for a unique, casual look or dress it up with heels and hoops for a chic yet distinct look.
 

Origins: This wax fabric, called Ankara in West Africa and Kitenge in East and Central Africa, was bought on a trip through Kenya. The shop is locally-owned in Mombasa. High quality satin lining bought in Barcelona at one of the oldest fabric shops in the city.

 

This kimono silhouette lets you experience Japan while this wax fabric allows you to travel to Kenya through fashion.
 

How to style: Wear loose over jeans, tied at the waist, or open as a swimsuit cover up. Want to be fancy? We paired this with a black dress underneath to wear open, with high heels and tons of gold jewelry stacked. Or wear as a wrap dress itself (just secure the inside panel with a pin.)

How to care: Machine wash on cold, do not iron. The fabric will soften over time with use.

Like all of our products, this kimono is Made in Barcelona at a local workshop with our partners.
