African Emerald Green Print Dress

African Emerald Green Print Dress

The vibrant East African print used to craft this handmade bohemian chic dress is a symbol of the colours and natural beauty of the land in East Africa. The loose shaped fit dresses are stitched with small darts around the waist, before flaring out to the hem. Style it with a coordinating clutch and sandals for a mid-week lunch date or heals for a more bold chic style.

The Swahili message at the base of the dress reads ‘Kwa Hili Anayeweza Ni Mungu’ meaning ‘Only God Can Do This’. Kanga (cotton) is a light weight East African cloth printed with bold designs. The material is printed with a message – usually proverbs, slogans, and aphorisms – in Swahili. The message is an important part of the history of the fabric, worn by women to deliver a certain message in East Africa.
