Kitenge’s 100% cotton shorts are lovingly handcrafted in Tanzania, East Africa, by highly skilled tailors using premium authentic ankara fabrics. Each pair of trendy and comfortable shorts are lovingly handmade meaning each one is unique and one of a kind!
Our social mission is to empower Tanzania tailors to improve their livelihoods one garment at a time. All raw materials, from the fabrics to the swing tickets, are locally sourced in Tanzania helping to benefit small communities and the economy.
Since our social enterprise started trading in 2014, the tailors we work with have been able to open their own workshops for the first time, move to larger premises, buy new sewing machines and equipment and hire/train new staff.
