African Beauty

Africa’s women, like its land, are unique. From Tanzania’s many cultures come many different faces and forms- but all of them are beautifully African. Our work African Beauty is a photographic compilation and tribute to the stunning femininity of Africa.

Wrapped around Swahili women like a second skin, Kanga are the vibrant traditional fabrics endemic to the East African Coast. The printed Kiswahili sayings found on kanga can almost do the talking for you, espousing everything from wisdom in life and love to warnings against gossip and even provoking arguments between wearers. This how-to guide to wearing kanga is a good start for those who wish to adopt the Swahili tradition of kanga for their own.
