The Moomoo commonly known as "Kijora" in Tanzania, is a cut and style that is very common in most African countries, but especially in Tanzania. It is a homage to my mothers, aunties, sisters and grandmothers.
Paired with a headwrap, it reminds me of an African "Madam" or that one aunt who everybody waits for to show up at family gatherings--she is feared, loudest, lives in the city, and calls you out infront of everyone.
Note: This Zawadi Moomoo will fit sizes S/M/L . It has a length of 53"
- Washed 100% cotton Rayon fabric
- Handmade in small batches
- Machine washable (cold), with like colors
Fahari Bazaar clothing is designed with comfort, functionality and style in mind. We believe that clothing should have enough room for movement--walking, running, and stretching. But most important to us, is that these clothing allows for self expression and style.
The fabrics we use are 100% cotton Kitenge, Kanga or Batiki fabrics sourced from women vendors at the Kitumbini fabric market in Dar es Salaam. The Batiki we use are sourced directly from the women who hand print and hand dye these fabrics in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
We have most of our clothing made in Tanzania, and a small batch is made in Chatham, New York. Having our clothes made in Tanzania creates high paying jobs for skilled tailors in a country where this occupation is often undervalued.
Our goal is to open a Fahari Bazaar Workshop that will provide working space, quality training and high paying jobs for young women, and men.
Product development and special orders are done by Fahari Wambura at the Fahari Bazaar shop in Chatham, New York.
