COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Ready-to-Wear Clothing & Women’s Accessories

Kitenge is operating as usual in the UK. Our online store remains open and we will continue to dispatch all ready-to-wear clothing and accessories (including those on sale) promptly and on time from the UK by Royal Mail.

Made to Measure Garments

Our talented team of tailors in Tanzania are continuing to make your colourful made to measure garments, which are shipped by DHL. Our current lead time for producing made to measure orders is 1-2 weeks.

Fabric & Men’s Accessories

We are not currently able to ship fabric and men’s accessories via the Post Office in Tanzania until further notice. The Post Office is waiting for more airlines to return to Tanzania in July and August before they can resume their usual service.

You are very welcome to place orders for fabric and men’s accessories on our website. We can either hold your order until we are able to send it via the Post Office in Tanzania as soon as possible or we can proceed to send your order by DHL.

Please select ‘standard‘ shipping on the basket page if you would like us to hold your fabric or men’s accessories order until we are able to ship via the Post Office or ‘priority‘ shipping if you prefer us to ship your order immediately by DHL.

Shipping Times

All items aim to be delivered in the same time frame as per usual, via Royal Mail from the UK and DHL in Tanzania. However, we apologise in advance if shipping takes a bit longer.


We are monitoring the situation closely in Tanzania and will take all necessary precautions to protect the tailors we support. Additional steps are also being taken when handling our clothing during this time, including washing the fabric as a precaution.
