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.
