Historically, textile has been a method for conveying important cultural information and often played a central role in festivities and ceremonies in Africa. At kanju we designed the Heritage Collection to celebrate ongoing and preserved textile traditions. The Heritage Collection is comprised of contemporary designs that incorporate authentic and ethically sourced textiles in a variety of mix-and-match cozy designs for the eclectic contemporary space.
