AFROTHREADS™ is more than an online fabric store—we aim to preserve and promote authentic African art and culture. Did you know that the majority of “African prints” on the market are not actually designed or made by Africans? To combat this, we have partnered with artisans and companies from different parts of the continent in order to share the history, technique, and meaning behind a variety of handmade and printed African fabrics. We encourage creativity and cultural appreciation: with knowledge and respect, anyone can proudly own, wear, and create with African prints and textiles. As Afro-diasporans, we are always looking for more ways to incorporate African art into both our wardrobes and our homes. Shop our growing collection of accessories and decor, which highlights the beauty and versatility of different African fabrics. We also strive for zero waste of these precious materials. We recycle leftover fabric whenever possible, and we are happy to collaborate with and/or donate to other creatives. Please contact us if interested!
