Great versatility – that is the main characteristic of a Brazilian canga. Our pieces are carefully produced by hand, one by one, with an ancient technique of painting and dying, making them incredibly unique and exclusive.
Mainly used at summertime, the cangas are one of the most popular items around Brazilian beaches, especially because they do not get full of sand.
But, how to use it?
During summertime you can wrap you body around it, making different types of skirts, dresses and tops to go to the beach, the pool or just hang around. Also, you can use your canga as a beach lounger for sunbathing and as a towel because they are lighter, made of cotton and dry much faster than a regular beach towel.
As seasonal as it seems, the Brazilian canga is a very multipurpose product that can be used the whole year - as a cover up to warm you up in the cool breeze of an autumn day and a lighter scarf to complete your look in the beginning of the winter. Also, it can become an extremely useful satchel to carry all your belongings – no matter the season. And there is more! If you are traveling why not take your canga with you? It makes a great blanket and a wonderful makeshift pillow, especially on a plane! However, the imagination has no limits, you can get creative and use you Brazilian canga no matter where and whenever you want!
