Handmade African print fabric is great for gifts, including a classic hankie. It’s also easy to personalise your handkerchiefs with a bit of embroidery on the corner.

3. Hooded Towels and Baby Blankets

One of our most popular gifts is the African print hooded towel, a great gift for a new baby. These gifts are a really stylish way to surprise the new parents. They’re wonderfully soft and comfortable and look great in the nursery or bathroom.

Baby blankets are also a great gift idea. They come in a range of sizes and styles and can be personalised too, so you can make them exactly what the new parents would want.


This is a great gift for the bookworm in your life. Bookmarks are a lovely way to mark your page, making great keepsakes and presents. Handmade African print fabric is perfect for stitching your own bookmarks. You can make a whole collection of bookmarks or choose a couple of designs to turn into a personalised gift.

5. Head Wraps

You can also turn a handmade African print fabric head wrap into an excellent gift for any remarkable woman in your life. These wraps are a stylish and sustainable way to keep your hair off your face, and the patterns are fun and funky.

They’re also effortless to make, so if you’re not a confident sewer, they’re a great project to keep you busy while you learn. They’re an excellent gift for new mums, a nursing cover, or keeping your hair back and out of your face while working in the garden or crafting.

6. Scarves

Handmade African print fabric scarves are a thoughtful gift because they are useful. You can choose a pattern and make a couple of scarves to brighten up the wardrobe of someone who’s feeling a bit dreary. They’re also a lovely way to gift someone with a bad hair day.
