Conceptualised by Madeleine Laini and Tyeisha Litambola in 2011 and ingrained with the ladies’ Congolese heritage, taking a conventional African accessory and re-inventing it to make it accessible to modern-day women, Kiyana Wraps has since grown organically as the go-to company for all things head wrapping and turbans.
