Magie Relph and Bob Irwin travel extensively all over Africa searching out fabulous textiles, beads and baskets.
Every time we unpack our bags, we add new temptations to the website. Enjoy!
We are co-organisers of eight World Textile Days around the UK in 2020.
We've all been to the remote village of Fakaha near Korhogo in the far north of Côte d'Ivoire.
To study and document the artists working there to handpaint their fascinating local cloth called - you guessed it - Korhogo.
We've got some great new Korhogo cloths on the website now. Each one is a totally unique work of art.

Bob's been busy photographing our latest mud cloths - a BIG job when you consider how BIG some of them are.
How big is big?
We're talking up to 2.25 metres x 1.7 metres!
Of course, we also have plenty of new regular-sized mud cloths as well. But be quick: each one is a unique creation. There's only one.

Where ever we venture on our African journeys, we're always searching for something new and exciting.
We're just back from South Africa - where we struck textile gold with a stunning range of furnishing fabrics.
The limited edition Art-I-San fabrics are slightly heavier - ideal for furnishing applications.
Designed by San Bushmen artists in Namibia. Handprinted in South Africa by Kalk Bay Modern. 100% cotton.
Plus: the beauty is not just in the fabrics. The San artists are paid proper royalties for their designs.
We love 'em. We're sure you will too!

We're back from The Gambia with a trunk load - literally! - of Musa's wonderful hand-dyed fabrics.
When we unpacked the trunk and saw how many different designs we now have in stock, we decided a bit of re-organising would not go amiss.
NEW page on website: all of Musa's indigo hand-dyed fabrics together
Updated page: all of Musa's kola nut and indigo fabrics, including his latest creations
