The Kanga Sula is made using Kanga cloth. This is a printed cotton cloth worn by women in Eastern and some parts of central Africa and Southern Africa. The Kanga's distinct feature is the Kiswahili phrases written on it. The Kanga is a little softer and lighter cotton compared to the Batiki fabrics we use.
This sleeveless Sula Dress, like all Fahari Bazaar dresses, is designed to have an oversized fit and look, but also made to fit multiple body sizes. It is available in Size 1, Size 2 and Size 3.
Size 1 will fit someone who wears size Small, Medium, Medium/Large and Large depending on if you prefer a loose or fitted fit.
Size 2 will fit someone who wears a size Medium, Large and one who is inbetween a Large and Extra Large.
Size 3 will fit someone who wears a Large, and Extra Large.
NOTE: Generally, as we are a very small team, dresses are ready to ship within 2-3 days but due to volume after a drop, we will ship in 3-5 days.

Fahari Bazaar clothing is designed with comfort, functionality and style in mind. We believe that clothing should have enough room for ease of movement but most important to us, is that these clothing allows for self expression and style.
We now have all our clothing made in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, at our Fahari Bazaar work space. Having our clothes made in Tanzania creates high paying jobs for skilled tailors and seamstresses in a country where this occupation is often undervalued.
The fabrics we use are 100% cotton Batiki fabrics, all handdyed in Dar es Salaam using wax resist, painting, and tie and dye techniques. We work directly with the women who design, hand print and handdye these fabrics to bring you unique and timeless prints. You will notice that each Batiki is unique, and a beautiful work of art.
We also occasionally use Kitenge, Kanga and Kikoy fabrics to express our love of fabrics, but also to share the different fabrics available here in Tanzania.
Through your continued support, we opened a small Fahari Bazaar working space in Dar es Salaam. It is also a space providing quality training and high paying jobs for aspiring tailors, seamstresses and designers.
Product development and design is done by Fahari Wambura.
