Chitenge Bandanas

Through our travels around Africa spending time at the local markets is a total must and the thing that catches your eyes at first sight are the traditional African fabrics, called chitenges in Zambia. These beautiful and colorful fabrics are 2 meters long and are used by absolutely every woman for anything and everything: carrying the children, food, wear it as a skirt, or having it in the bag just in case…

After years in Africa, we have chosen the most special chitenge designs over thousands of them, coming from countries as Zambia, Tanzania, Congo and Nigeria among others, to make a unique Collection of Bandanas and Tote Bags.

Why are they unique? From each design of chitenge there is just ONE tote bag and just ONE bandana of each size. That means that there are no 2 tote bags the same in the world or 2 dog bandanas of the same size. Special and unique, hand-made by us just for you.

Most of the bandanas are 100% cotton and are a classic tie on triangle style.

Composition

The majority of our chitenges are 100% cotton, although, few of them (3 designs) have a % of nylon in the composition. Click on the different designs above to know the composition.


Care instructions

Some of the chitenges are sold with a wax layer on top to protect them but don’t worry, it disappears after the first wash. We highly recommend hand-washing our African bandanas and tote bags with cool water and mild detergent.
