Crazy COVID, lockdown crazies and crazy WhatsApp shopping sprees.

That's what this crazy year has been like for us.

Our marvellous friend Felicia - religiously wearing her mask and social distancing - has been zooming around Accra for us and WhatsApping back to Magie as they worked to select our latest collection of African wax print fabrics.

We've just unpacked the shipment and got all the new designs up on the website in record time.

Thanks, Felicia. We couldn't have done it without you.

Kenyan kikoy: Go bright or subtle. Wear as a wrapper or cover a cushion pad on your garden bench.

NEW Kenyan kikoy just arrived: more than just a wrapper

Our Kenya supply chain has come through again: thanks, Gretchen.

Bob was photographing yesterday and today - presto! - some great new kikoy are on the website NOW.

We never leave home without a couple of these soft, versatile cloths in our bag. They're multi-colour and very multi-use.

  • Comfortable wrapper... Check.
  • Picnic or beach blanket... Of course.
  • Shawl or scarf... Certainly.
  • Table cloth or runner... Absolutely.
  • Wallhanging... Why not?
  • Or use your imagination!
