African Wax Prints

Traditional and contemporary African designs

When most people think of African fabrics, the first thing that comes to mind is these traditional African wax prints.

Traditional - because they've been sold in African markets since the industrial revolution and many of the original designs are still popular today.

Contemporary - because today's designers are creating new patterns to reflect modern tastes, as well as putting a contemporary spin on traditional designs.

All 100% cotton, most of these genuine wax prints are made in Ghana.

Fabrics are 115 cm / 45 in wide, approximately. Fat Quarters are 50 x 57 cm / 20 x 22 in, approximately.

Per Fat Quarter: £3.70     Per metre: £14.80
