NEW stock on website NOW!

Our pal Kwasi is a a vintage textile dealer in Accra. His stash is chock full of the vintage textile fragments that he needs to repair damaged whole cloths like Kente.

Magie spends hours digging through his bin bags looking for beautiful pieces, which she uses to create small pieces of textile art.

Just arrived from Mali: seriously LARGE mud cloths

You probably know that the ongoing crisis in Mali means mud cloth is increasingly hard to get.

We're lucky, though. Our great pal Eric Boateng in Accra is still able to source mud cloths for us.

Our latest shipment is now online - including a few very RARE and very LARGE cloths.

Well done, Eric!
