14.10.2011 - Lucía de Su have used rectangular fabric shapes as the base of their collection, with kangas in eye-catching colours and designs.  The word kanga comes from the old Bantu (Kiswahili) verb ku-kanga to wrap or close.  This is a garment worn by women and occasionally by men throughout Eastern Africa.  It is a piece of printed cotton fabric and usually very colorful. In the designs by Lucía de Su, each piece carries a proverb in Ki-swahili, a form used by women to let people know how they are feeling.
