The name Langa Lapu comes from the Xhosa for 'sun cloth'. And that's just how these wonderful hand-dyed fabrics are created.
Designer Pru Bolus and her team combine leaves, ferns and seed pods from indigenous South African plants with eco-friendly dyes, expose the fabrics to the sun and presto: Langa Lapu fabrics!
Every single piece of Langa Lapu fabric is a unique, one-off creation, which is what makes these fabrics so very special.
All fabrics are 100% South African export quality cotton with a crisp feel. Suitable for dressmaking, crafts and light upholstery. Weight: 190 grams per metre, approximately.
Fabrics are 150 cm / 59 in wide, approximately. Fat Quarters are 50 x 75 cm / 20 x 29 in, approximately.
Ordering lengths: Langa Lapu is dyed in small batches, normally about 5 metres long. Therefore, the longest single uncut length we can offer is 5 metres. If you order more than 5 metres, your fabric will come in more than a single piece. If in doubt, please contact us.
Per Fat Quarter: £5.75 Per metre: £23.00
