Authentic African Wax Print Fabric Produced and Sourced in Africa

The width of our brightly coloured fabrics measures 46 inches (117cm) and the length of each yard measures 36 inches (91cm). The 100% cotton is suitable for making a wide range of garments, accessories and African interior design items.

From birthdays to weddings and housewarmings, there are many different celebrations throughout the year. If you’re looking for a new sewing project you could make your own handmade gifts for loved ones using unique African print fabric.

Our premium fabrics have excellent colourfastness and will become even softer after each wash. To get the most out of these beautiful and fun fabrics, follow our helpful wash care advice so they will still look as good as new in many years to come.

We choose to source the highest quality fabrics printed in Africa to support cotton farmers, the African textile industry and female entrepreneurs who sell the fabrics at local markets. Learn how you can tell the difference between authentic and imitation fabrics made in China.

Kitenge is proud to be an ethical and sustainable fashion brand that puts people and the planet before profits. Your purchase also helps to improve the livelihoods of the tailors we work with in Tanzania who make our one of a kind made to measure garments.

All our fabrics are shipped promptly from Tanzania within 1-2 working days either via the Post Office or by courier (DHL). We regularly ship our African print fabrics to customers in North America and Europe. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
