Loving the speedbird theme! Top quality fabric.

Another great buy! This fabric is just top-notch!
I always get asked where I get the fabulous prints I work with and I decided to make these available for those who want to experiment with unusual and vibrant textiles.
Here you will find hand-drawn, hand-dyed batik fabric from Oshogbo in Southern Nigeria. You will also find African Wax prints that are specially selected for their uniqueness.
Hopefully, I can also pass on the growing knowledge I am picking up along the way.
My name is Dolapo and I love to design and create things with bright colours, bold shapes or intricate patterns. I am a chartered Architect turned accessory designer.
