I have had the same kikoi for about 13 years now and it is getting holes in it now from washing and wearing it so often. So I took myself to the local African shop and bought another one. I was planning on getting one in South Africa but our trip has been cancelled due to COVID-19 and I use them a lot in summer so I found this pretty one in Stockholm.
I use mine as a beach towel, blanket/sheet on hot nights, wrapped around me after the shower, as a sarong. You can also use it as a halter-neck dress or the traditional way, around your waist. You can even use it as a curtain!
My cats used to love sleeping on my old one.
