Each bundle includes 16 fat 1/4 cuts of African Ankara fabrics in mouth watering colors and awe-inspiring prints!
Africa has been rich with textiles since the beginning of time. Used to define oneself, African textiles are a major form of expression and a powerful medium of communication. Today you can find these distinct, bold fabrics flourishing throughout Africa as items such as blankets, skirts, tunics, pillows and backdrops. Ankara, also known as Dutch Wax Prints, are 100% cotton and printed using a wax-resist method of printing, similar to batiks. These fabrics require pre-washing, due to the method of printing, but once washed, the stiffness disappears, leaving behind an incredibly soft cotton fabric.
