Unique Chitenge Products

The Amazing Chitenge

In most of rural Southern Africa, the chitenge is customary as everyday dress at funerals and official rituals and ceremonies. They provide functionality and modesty for the women. Many of the chitenge designs have a meaning or written message. In Zambia, chitenges are given as gifts to women of all ages and are used as a baby carrier, rain covering, and everyday attire.
