“I recently received four made to measure shirts through Kitenge handmade in Tanzania. I am very pleased with the shirts. I have always loved the bright colors and designs of the Kitenge (wax) shirts; they bring sunshine even on a dreary day. Another reason for ordering the shirts directly from Tanzania is providing work directly to the fine tailors there. I must also mention that the quality of cotton used is first class. I’m sure I’ll be able to wear these shirts for many years (providing I don’t gain excessive weight that is).
Feel free to order from this fine company, you will not be disappointed. The founder of Kitenge, Sian Wells, has been very helpful and promptly replied to my e-mails. She really cares about her company and will, I know for fact, give you excellent service. It is a real pleasure in this day and age to receive such attention. You will not be disappointed. Please do let the tailors in Tanzania know that I am very happy with the quality work they’ve done for me.” (Oliver, Switzerland)
