You have the choice of fabrics, for your personalized craft creations

I am delighted to share with you my love for African wax fabrics. I give the choice of fabric for all my creations. ​


I source my own products from markets in Ivory Coast, ensuring that the fabrics used are authentic and of high quality. Additionally, by purchasing locally, I am directly supporting African traders and businesses that create these beautiful traditional designs.


​ By choosing to purchase my handmade creations, you are helping to promote a responsible approach to consumption, avoiding mass production and reducing your environmental impact.


​ By opting for my creations in African wax fabric, you add a touch of authenticity and culture to your personal style and your interior. Each piece I make is unique, because I favor creativity and diversity of patterns. You can be assured of owning a truly original and remarkable accessory or interior decoration. ​


By choosing my creations in African wax fabric, you are doing much more than just making a purchase ! You are participating in a movement aimed at promoting responsible consumption, supporting local artisans and preserving cultural traditions. ​


Thank you for being part of my journey and supporting my ethical and fair trade.

The wax (wax in English), also called African fabric is a cotton textile, with trendy, varied and colorful patterns. Wax is very popular in West Africa (even if its origins date back to Indonesia) where it is used to make many clothes, including the famous African wax loincloths.

The wax is not of African origin in reality. It has been made in Indonesia for several centuries, where Holland has several colonies there.

Depending on its origin, the wax is called "Dutch", "English", "African" or "Chinese". ​

The manufacture is done using two large copper rollers where the designs are engraved on one intended to print the wax on the back of the fabric and the other on the place. This manufacturing technique guarantees high quality for the wax fabric. ​ ​
