Customer Showcase

'I just love your African fabrics, but what can I do with them?'

Our answer, as you might expect, is pretty drastic: Cut them up and be creative!

Well, that's just what many of our customers do and we're constantly amazed at the innovative pieces they create. And because not everybody is a quilter, when ever we can we like to show other uses for our fabrics - such as clothing, bags and accessories, upholstery - you name it.

So, if you're proud of a textile creation that you've made using our fabrics, please email us a high quality digital image. Time permitting, we'll try to get it up on this page for everyone to admire.

Sheep - Jane Rowland

Jane is always amazing us with her latest textile creation. In fact, we have  featured her work in our book African Wax Print: A Textile Journey.

In her latest wallhanging she's used a variety of our African wax print fabrics to depict sheep.

Our comment? 'Who else?'

African Wax Print Blinds - Helen Hossanee

Helen was in the shop recently at one of our monthly Open Days and after much deliberation settled on a classic African wax print design - Record Disk - for her kitchen blinds.

We love 'em!
