There may occur small differences in colours who seem similar on the first sight. This is because in Kenya people don’t use the same quantity of dye in the weaving proces. The kikoys are being made on a single weaving-loom. The finishing (fringes and fastenings) are made by hand. This is why small irregularities may occurr. All this makes your kikoy a natural and unique article!
