How the Kichana is made
Craftsmanship is at the heart of everything we do
Step 1: Cotton
Our Kichana wraps are made from 100% cotton yarn cultivated in South Africa.
The raw cotton is transformed into yarn using a loom
Step 2: Yarn
The yarn is sourced from a cotton spinning mill in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.
Step 3: Dyeing
The yarn is dyed in Worcester by one of the only cotton dyers in the Western Cape.
This process is effluent friendly, which means they make sure not to pollute the water afterwards with the dyes.
Step 4: Knitting
Our Kichana wraps are knitted on electronic knitting machines, they are made in a 10 Gauge knit.
Gauge is the looseness or the tightness of a knitted fabric.
The Kichana wrap is made of 100% cotton yarn. The yarn is produced and sourced in South Africa, it is then machine knitted by our partner makers R&R Knitwear in Cape Town.
The Kichana wrap can be machine washed separately, on a light/gentle spin, at 30 degrees Celsius maximum. When wet, pull back into shape and air dry.
If you have any doubts about this process, we recommend dry cleaning this garment.
The Kichana wrap is made to fit women of all shapes and sizes, it can be wrapped around you and styled in several different ways, so it will definitely fit petite women.
The armhole in the wrap is 25cm/ 9.8 inches wide, one of the creative ways of styling this piece is by putting your head through the armhole and wearing it as a poncho (if your head fits :-) )
The Kichana wrap is made for women of all shapes and sizes, it is One Size and measures 225cm long and 50cm wide / 88.5inches long and 19.6inches wide.
