About Mashona Designs

Mashona Designs

Vibrant African inspired accessories, handmade in East Sussex using African fabric

I’m Chantel and I run Mashona Designs from my home in East Sussex.

I’ve always enjoyed being creative and over the years taken many art classes from painting still life to life drawing, getting lost in the creative process for hours!

During lockdown 2020 I wanted to gain a new skill so started creating clothing and accessories for myself and discovered Ankara Wax fabric. I have always been drawn to bold vibrant colours and patterns so working with Ankara felt like a perfect match.

I threw caution to the wind and started Mashona Designs. The name Mashona Designs was inspired from my mother’s Zimbabwean heritage.

I create my accessories using sustainable sourced African fabrics from remnants and off cuts.

I really love creating beautiful, quality handmade items that bring sunshine to your wardrobe. The collection of accessories will continue to develop so keep an eye out.

Best wishes
