It's an African Dashiki.

More specifically West Africa.

I have one just like it that I bought in Kenya. But you know what, the shirt is actually made in Thailand. I saw them for sale in both Kenya and Tanzania. I'm sure you can find them in an African import shop.

There are some different, yet similar, shirts that come out of Guatamala. Heavier fabric though.
