The kanga is a colourful fabric similar to kitenge but lighter; worn by women and occasionally by men throughout the African Great Lakes region. It is a piece of printed cotton fabric, often with a border along all four sides (called pindo in Swahili), and a central part (mji) which differs in design from the borders. They are sold in pairs, which can then be cut and hemmed to be used as a set.
