The main folk garment of Tanzanian women is a kanga. It is a rectangular cotton cloth (1.5m x 1m) with a printed pattern and (in most cases) a printed saying. The print on the center of the cloth differs from the one on the borders. But the most interesting and unique thing about kanga is the phrase printed on it. Actually, we should say that many African women can’t openly express their thoughts even in modern times. Their place in society is too low. That’s why some Tanzanian females wear kangas with sharp sayings printed on them – these garments are their voice. Of course, not all of the sayings have such a deep meaning, many phrases just say simple things like “We love our Africa”, “Let our love stand forever”, etc. In any case, Tanzanians love their kangas and the witty phrases on them. They invented dozens of ways to drape a kanga, from simple wrap-around skirts to complicated garments. Also, women always use kangas to carry goods and babies, as a décor in houses, as headdresses and accessories.
