Hand-dyed cotton prints from The Gambia

These simple graphic depictions of African imagery have a wonderful naif feel. They are all hand-dyed using a wax resist stamping technique by my friend Musa Jaiteh in his family compound in The Gambia. All fabrics are 100% cotton.

Fabrics are 82 cm / 32 in wide, approximately. Fat Quarters are 50 x 41 cm / 20 x 16 in, approximately.

Note about colour
Because all of these fabrics are hand-dyed, there may be slight variation in colour from batch to batch or from pattern to pattern.

Ordering lengths
Musa dyes his fabrics in small batches, so these fabrics are normally available in pieces up to 2.5 metres long. If you need more than 2.5 metres of a specific fabric, please check with me first for availability.
