Vintage & Collectable African Textiles

Africa is rich in textile traditions

When ever and where ever we travel in Africa, we're constantly finding new textiles that we've read about, but never before encountered in real life.

Sometimes we're lucky. We get to sit down under a tree with the artisan maker - or for vintage cloths, in a dusty village market with the seller. That's how we learn how these cloths are made, worn, used and cherished in their African cultures. 

Often - just because these cloths are so beautiful - we can't resist buying them. Afterall, that's our passion.

Have a leisurely browse and enjoy the fruits of our travels.
