African Vintage.

I have to remind you once in a while that I am.... Always on the look out for unique, groovy, sassy, swanky, hip, bright, bold & funky stuff that gives you the wiggles & giggles! From there to here, from here to there, Funky things are everywhere!

Since that is my motto of the blog :-)

And see what I found now on the internet... African Vintage!

Maybe you know that I collect vintage fabrics. I have a room full of fabrics that I bought online via Ebay from all over the world. I have Japanese, European, American vintage fabrics. But not so much African Vintage, but I am drooling over these pictures.

Although the look is vintage, the fabrics are not, and some of these fabrics I already have.

The BEST of the BEST African fabric is by the way: VLISCO ~ manufactured in.... the NETHERLANDS!! did you know that?? If an African woman gets married, she will get married in Vlisco fabric!! (If she can afford it or course). Vlisco makes real Dutch wax prints since 1846. The only thing I don't understand is why the Dutch don't wear it??

Below these fabrics are not necessarily Vlisco, just African fabrics, but nonetheless gorgeous!!

How cute is this skirt? With some scrap pieces you can make this gorgeous skirt!! I am going to try after my break!

Some cool images to give you an idea what you can do with African fabrics! You like??











Tell me, do you like fabrics?? And which one is your favorite??

Have a good day y'all!
