Announcement   HOW IS IT AUTUMN AND XMAS IS LURKING ROUND THE CORNER??

Greetings everyone.
Thank you all for your support throughout summer. I think now I have finally accepted the super hot days are over. But that does not mean I am gloomy. Oh no.. there is still so much to be happy about! Xmas is round the corner that means, we will be stocking up some good gift ideas for. This includes a lot more aprons, oven gloves, table runners and even some placemats if I manage to sew these on time!
Another special addition to the shop is the Menswear range, starting with the AfroShirt. I just need to shoot these professionally before adding them in the shop! Look out for these as they will make a great Xmas present for that special someone!

Our SS18 RISE colllection is still available to buy although sizes are now very limited!

Our pop up events now are winding down but we will be going out with a bang with 5 Xmas markets coming up from end of October to the 8th of December. Please see specific details/dates below..

Happy Shopping!!

About

Welcome to Afrocentric805, the house of African and ethnic inspired homeware and fashion

Thank you so much for visiting my shop!

So much has happened since we joined the Etsy world back in 2012, but I am glad that now I have a much bigger product range to offer you guys. Here's a little bit of info about me and my shop.

Born and raised in Zimbabwe, I grew up in a small mining town called Kwekwe in a humble little house #805. Now based in the UK, I studied for a degree in Clothing Design Technology and qualified as a Garment Technologist.

My inspiration comes mainly from my late mother, who I remember made such lovely dresses for me and my siblings when we were kids. I took over her old Singer sewing machine and since then, I have never looked back.

Afrocentric805 is a unique homeware and fashion brand created for anyone passionate about everything African, ethnic and tradition inspired. It's a house, a home filled with warmth and positivity, joy and happiness with products hand crafted to stand out and be adored.

You will find a lot of natural 100% Cotton Batik prints depicting traditional Zimbabwean culture, African Cotton Wax prints for a West African influence, sometimes but not always mixed with other fabrics and trims to give that contemporary but edgy look. My aim is to be able to cater not only for your fashion needs/wants but also your home.
