I met these young Moms and their babies in Ilula, a small Tanzanian village near Iringa, Tanzania. They are dressed in their traditional kanga cloths, a rectangle of cotton cloth with a border all around printed in bold designs and bright colors. Kangas are usually worn as a pair – called a “doti”. One or two more kangas are often used to carry babies papoose style on mom’s back.
