About Upenyu

Sales 3,926
On Etsy since 2013

African Zipper Pouches, African Fabric and Ankara head wraps

Despite growing up with and loving African print fabric I am sometimes overwhelmed by the vibrant and bold colors. I started Upenyu (Shona for life) because I figured I couldn't be the only one that loves African Fabric but is overwhelmed by it.

I am on a mission to present to you African Fabric themed pieces for your everyday use. Just enough color and drama will be added without overwhelming you.

I sew every piece in my home studio, creating while also trying to ensure my boys are have my attention - a tricky balancing act. My work reflects places and people both local and global.

Will a yard of fabric be adequate for a head wrap?

Yes it will! However, it is not versatile enough to give you many styling options. A yard is 36"x44" while an average head wrap is 22"x 70"
