The Zawadi Moomoo 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.
The Zawadi Moomoo is a lounging gown, it is a chic weekend dress, it is a prayer gown, it is a beach dress, it is a stylish dress to wear to all your special events and parties!
Note: This Zawadi Moomoo will fit sizes S/M/L/XL . It has a length of 48"
- Washed 100% cotton Batiki 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.
We have most of our clothing made in Tanzania, and a very 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.
The fabrics we use are 100% cotton Kitenge, Kanga or Batiki fabrics. The Kanga and Kitenge fabrics are 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.
Through your continued support, this year we opened a small Fahari Bazaar Workshop that is a working space, but it is also providing quality training and high paying jobs for aspiring tailors, seamstresses and designers.
Product development is done by Fahari Wambura in Chatham, New York.
