Shukas usually come in red – the favourite colour of the Maasai, to match their red ochre decorated bodies. Made predominantly in a checked design, the colours and sizes of stripes vary. Thrown over the shoulder or tied round the waist by a sword belt they are multi-functional, from wrap to scarf, rug to blanket. Shukas are often used in Africa as tablecloths; dog blankets and are ideal for picnics.
