Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.

Product story
Shipping & returns
Kikoi, though commonly known as kikoy is a traditional hand-woven fabric commonly worn by the coastal communities of Kenya and also by other communities in East Africa.

Having been made of pure cotton, the kikoy is very comfortable to the skin hence can be worn by both men and women, of all ages.

Two of the sides have handmade tassels.

One can choose to wear the kikoy as a beach towel or wrap, a scarf, tablecloth, and may as well be tailored to make various clothes such as robes, shirts, bags and pillow covers. The ideas are simply endless; it's all up to you to be a little creative!

A Kikoi is very easy to wash and takes a very short while to dry.

The adult kikoy measures approximately 64 by 39 inches while the unisex kids' kikoy measures approximately 28 by 48 inches

These great Kikois would make great presents for your loved ones; more especially for someone who has just had a baby, or one who is planning on spending some time at the beach.

EVERYONE IS EMBRACING THE KIKOY, INCLUDING MADONNA and PRINCE HARRY, SO DON'T BE LEFT BEHIND!
