A modern design twist on traditional African tie-dye fabric. Great for clothing, accessories and any craft projects you have on the drawing board! A light pink against a deep purple, almost black, background.

This fabric is hand-drawn and hand-dyed in Nigeria and consists of traditional Yoruba symbols each with a name and story. The stories are often words of advice from the elders, or a means of documenting social, economic and environmental conditions. The fabric is therefore like a piece of Yoruba art.

For an idea of the scale of the patterns in the fabric look at the last image above. Each ‘square’ in the fabric design measures approximately 12 x 14 inches.

KINDLY NOTE: We photograph the fabric in natural daylight and make every effort to represent the colours as accurately as possible, nevertheless colours may display differently depending on the monitors/screens they are viewed on. Also if you have purchased this fabric before, it may not have exactly the same shades and tones due to the organic nature of dyeing.
