All of our batiks are hand-dyed by artisan makers in West Africa. Top quality 100% cotton. Colourful, versatile and perfect for patchwork! By the metre and fat quarter. Packs and bundles too!
Our vast range of African beads are all handcrafted from recycled materials by artisan makers, mostly in Ghana. Recycled glass, brass, plastic, paper and bone. Also a variety of shell and stone beads. Great for jewellery, beading and embellishments
The very best quality from the very best basket weavers around Bolgatanga, Ghana. Colourful, practical and durable. Be quick, though. We sell out very quickly!
