Langa Lapu South African Sun Prints

Hand-dyed and handscreened in South African

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 crisp feel. Suitable for dressmaking, crafts and light upholstery.

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: £5.70     Per metre: £22.80
