When most people think of African fabrics, the first thing that comes to mind is these traditional African wax prints.
Traditional - because they've been sold in African markets since the industrial revolution and many of the original designs are still popular today.
Contemporary - because today's designers are creating new patterns to reflect modern tastes, as well as putting a contemporary spin on traditional designs.
All 100% cotton, most of these genuine wax prints are made in Ghana, Ivory Coast and Mali.
Genuine African wax print is very robust and stands up to years of washing. It's great for colourful and distinctive clothing. Many creative and innovative textile artists are using wax print in their quilts and wallhangings.
Fabrics are 115 cm / 45 in wide, approximately.
