Chitenge Fabric:

Kitenge or chitenge is an East African, West African and Central African fabric similar to sarong.

Often worn by women and wrapped around the chest or waist, over the head as a headscarf, or as a baby sling.

Kitenges are colourful pieces of fabric. In the Coastal area of Kenya, and in Tanzania, Kitenges often have Swahili sayings written on them.[citation needed]

Kitenges are similar to kangas and kikoy, but are of a thicker cloth and have an edging on only a long side.

KenyaUgandaTanzaniaSudanNigeriaGhanaSenegalLiberiaRwanda, and Democratic Republic of the Congo are some of the African countries where kitenge is worn.[citation needed]

In MalawiNamibia and Zambia, kitenge is known as Chitenge.

How are they worn?

The beautiful prints are sometimes worn by men around the waist in hot weather. In some countries like Malawi, Chitenges never used to be worn by men.

Only until recently when the president encouraged civil servants to buy Malawian products by wearing Chitenge on Fridays.

Kitenges (plural vitenge in Swahilizitenge in Tonga) serve as an inexpensive, informal piece of clothing that is often decorated with a huge variety of colors, patterns and even political slogans.

The printing on the cloth is done by a traditional batik technique.

These are known as wax prints and the design is equally as bright and detailed on the obverse side of the fabric.

These days the lovely Wax prints are commercially made and are almost completely roller printed.

Fancy prints are roller printed with the designs being less colorful or detailed on the obverse side. Many of the designs have a meaning.

A large variety of religious and political designs are found as well as traditional tribal patterns.

The cloth is used as material for dresses, blouses and pants as well.
