Malawi Made

Tailored Clothing info! 

Joy and I will be returning next month, and March is already flying by! I’ve been talking with a few local tailors and I’d love to give them a little business before I leave.

I will definitely bring back a variety of beautiful chitenges if anyone is interested in buying for $10. They’re bright, versatile, and perfect for summer! 

   Beautiful chitenges from all over the African continent

  Baby girls love practicing carrying “their babies” too.

  Chitenge skirts are the village favorite. Worn over dresses, skirts, pants etc to stay clean and conservative. 
For those who are interested in having a men’s shirt, dress, skirt, or kids dress made for them, I need the following- 
Measurements (with old fashioned measuring tape!)

Shoulder to shoulder

Skirts

There are an array of colors and styles. 

I’ve included some samples, but you can literally Google “tailored African women’s/men’s/children’s clothes” and email me what you like, I can have a similar version made. 

   
   

   
  
    

 It’s a great way to support the local Malawian economy. Plus you have an amazingly unique piece of clothing made just for you!
