Lamu Old Town is the oldest and best-preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa, retaining its traditional functions. Built in coral stone and mangrove timber, the town is characterized by the simplicity of structural forms enriched by such features as inner courtyards, verandas, and elaborately carved wooden doors. Lamu has hosted major Muslim religious festivals since the 19th century, and has become a significant centre for the study of Islamic and Swahili cultures.

Sasa Designs wraps are designed to be adjustable for the perfect fit, regardless of how big or small your wrist is! Simply wrap to desired comfort, and choose the most appropriate loop to secure your tag. Cut or tuck any excess leather - most women can wear the wrap 4-5 times around. Some wearers adjust the knots a tiny bit to get an even more perfect fit - simply loosen the leather and adjust before tightening the knots on either side of the preferred loop.
