Kanga Kabisa’s aim is to produce unique clothing and accessories of the highest quality in Zanzibar. We operate with high ethical principles, sourcing materials and labour locally and always ensuring our production is fair. We are the initiators of the local quality producers network – ”Made in Zanzibar” www.madeinzanzibar.com
Kanga Kabisa was born in Zanzibar 2004 when Lotta Gillving was looking for clothes in natural materials for her son Svante and did not find what she was looking for so she decided to design her own. An instant success amongst friends – Kanga Kabisa offered something new and exciting. Today, Kanga Kabisa is a full production shop, managing everything from design to manufacture to sales and marketing.
Our goal is to offer a unique and fair quality alternative from Zanzibar/Tanzania for the whole family. Our products are made from local fabrics called kanga and kitenge. Kabisa is simply completely in Swahili; so Kanga Kabisa means Completely Kanga.The Kanga embodies art, beauty and culture. It is used at any occasion and follows people through life.
