Whether you’re in Africa or not, the continent has a distinct flair. It is a land where cultures have mixed, resulting in a rich cultural melting pot. This results in styles and colors which are distinctive from the rest of the world.
Africa is an expansive continent, and so the fabrics it produces can be very different. The most common fabric in Africa is known as Adire and has been used for hundreds of years.
Adire fabric, and more particularly Kampala fabric, is made by a unique process. A mixture of cotton and silk is produced in an industrial manner, with the silk content being very high. It is then washed and dyed before being processed further.
The results are very vibrant and eye-catching, and you can use them to make a range of wonderful items including textiles and bed linen. This is what we have done in this collection of 25 photos, showcasing 25 great African fabrics you can make.
