What's the difference between a kikoi & a kanga?

I think vikoi are worn more by men, kanga by women. But the full nuances are a bit lost on me.

kikois tend to be a little thicker material-wise than kangas; kangas are made of light cotton fabric (though some can be a little stiffer). Kikois are a little heavier, almost like a shawl, and they're made with bright colored fabric in stripes, whereas kangas have more decorative patterning
