ORIGINAL ANKARA FABRIC MADE AND SOURCED IN AFRICA

Kitenge fabric (also know as ‘ankara fabric‘ in West Africa) is a highly respected craft and labour-intensive art form. There are several different steps in the production process when making African ankara fabric.

Our brightly coloured fabrics have fantastic colourfastness and the more you wash the fabric, by hand or machine, the softer it becomes. This is why our customers love how comfortable our African print clothing is to wear.

Learn how to wash African wax print fabric.

Whether you are looking to make your own clothes, some curtains, cushions or have a quilting project on the go, we have a range of different coloured fabrics and one of a kind patterns.

Find out what you can make with your African print fabric.

The fabrics are available in 1 to 5 individually cut yards or 6 yard pieces so that you can order enough to meet your project requirements. The width of the African kitenge fabric is 46 inches.

There may also be some fat quarters available in some of the fabric prints for quilters and crafts people. Any fabric offcuts that we are unable to sell or use to make men’s accessories are donated to female Tanzanian artisans, schools and charities.

As an ethical and sustainable fashion brand, as well as a social enterprise, we believe in zero waste and protecting the environment as much as possible. All fabrics are shipped worldwide from Tanzania including online tracking.

Please contact us with any questions you may have and we shall be more than happy to help.
