aren't these little boys' shorts adorable?! i'd love a pair for diesel. they come from a little start up company called kalulu kids. read on to learn more about this unique brand.
A kikoy is not just a garment. A kikoy is a work of art using beautifully vibrant colors, all of which are reminiscent of the region in Africa where Kalulu’s story truly begins.
East African men have worn kikoy fabric as sarongs for generations. Using time-honored practices, the weaving technique creates beautiful, durable and comfortable fabric, that gets softer with each wash. The resulting stripes and plaids are at once familiar and exotic. The cloth provides a sense of place, picking up on the earthy hues found on safari, as well as the beachy tones borrowed from a day on the East African coast.
Kalulu Kids clothes are made out of this traditional woven cotton from East Africa and are designed and manufactured in New York. The cotton, all of which is woven and spun in East Africa, is mostly dyed with eco-certified dyes from Europe. This gives an enduring quality not usually found with the old traditional dyes.
