I can't speak for the word "kitambaa," but I have heard nguo in reference to both cloth and clothes. Although the fabrics which are most common are "kitenge" and "kanga" and these are more often referred to by their names.

Thanks. it dawned on me that in the past generations, clothes and cloths were pretty much the same thing!!
