About diligenthandsfabrics


Your favourite African fabrics and handmade shop

I sell fabrics from different part of Africa but several now come from Nigeria, Ghana and Netherlands.

In the many years I have been in business my passion is finding various designs as African prints become mainstream. Finding products that suit a diverse set of crafts needs and dressmaking is necessary to have an all inclusive offering.

All the products are sourced directly from manufacturers/ artisan suppliers and where it is not possible to buy directly, I only purchase through designated partners of the supplier.

Most of my sourcing partners are African based businesses that feed into the economy of their domicile country. I also work with talented African ingenious designers in diaspora. All Batiks are made locally in Nigeria and Ghana.

The designs range from contemporary to classic and sometimes just funky so there is always something for everyone.

I appreciate your custom, referrals and general support. If you experience anything shy of a 5 star treatment tell me so I can fix it. If you get the celebrated treatment you deserve please don't keep it to yourself. I would be happy to hear about it in the reviews section.

Favourite my shop to get alerts on new products and shop updates that way you can continue to stay in touch!

You can follow me on social media @diligenthandsfabrics for style inspirations or just to know what am up to.
