African fashion always makes a statement, but with our high-quality made to measure trousers and shorts it will be the right one. African print trousers can be worn casually or dressed up for special events. Likewise, our shorts go well with plain coloured tops for an understated look, matching African print shirts for head-to-toe woah, or even no tops if you’re on the beach! Even though the material is thick, it will keep you cool in soaring temperatures due to the high-quality 100% cotton fabric.
Our range of bottoms are carefully handmade in Tanzania by expert tailors who follow a standard pattern and customise it according to your preferences. You have creative input into the final product by entering your preferred design features and measurements online in an easy process. Choose whether or not your bottoms have deep side pockets and whether the elastic waistband has a drawstring for more control over the tightness of the fit.
The machine-washable prints are incredibly colourfast, meaning they can look brand new and remain a wardrobe staple for years and years. The fabric gets softer each time you wash your Kitenge trousers and shorts, which is not something that can be said for most off-the-rack clothing. We focus on quality and sustainability by cutting our MTM trousers and shorts to order, which reduces fabric waste. Enjoy the luxury of knowing that each pair of shorts or trousers you wear is unique in its tailoring. Unsold fabric scraps are donated to charities and local tailors, often women, to make accessories. It’s the guilt-free way to look and feel flawlessly fabulous whatever the occasion.
