African Fabrics & Kodes
I am a Web Developer by day who started with no crafts skills whatsoever, but then I fell in love with African fabrics!
I found myself wanting a particular necklace for myself in my favourite colour, mustard. I made one and it all took off from there, around November/December 2014. I started to shop around for beads and experiment with the first few necklaces.
I go shopping for African fabrics in the busy and colourful Brixton Village Market in London.
Brixton is packed with African shops that sell gorgeous wax cotton fabrics. Going to these stores for me is like being in a candy shop for kids, although sometimes it's hard to capture the fabric pattern on a necklace, but I try to pick the brightest fabrics, with interesting patterns.
Being a Web Developer by day, I write code every day, so when it came to choosing a name for my necklaces, I thought that the word "Kode" sounded not only very similar to "code", but also quite African sounding (to me at least of course!) and that it could represent my alter ego, the crafty side of me, my crafty "code".
I hope you will enjoy my accessories and join me on my journey, through headbands, dog bandanas, shopper tote bags and many more to come!
I am a Web Developer who has never had any interest in craft or hand made stuff, until I fell in love with African Fabrics and decided I wanted to make a necklace for myself, after finding out on the internet it seemed very easy. And here I am!
