Im starting my own womenswear line with an ethnic look, I have designed my own graphics and need to get them printed soon but I want them printed in the techniques/style of African textile so i.e mud cloth, tie dye, batik etc.
Does anyone have any contacts or can direct me in some way?? I am based in East London if that helps
i too am working with batikers - there is a lady on this site edwina who is based in ghana she is a batiker and i have another contact there
or choolips annegret she works with batikers and global mamas i ghana
or i had another link to those in senegal too
there are plenty in africa but in uk .. i dunno
I came across these guys recently who might be able to help http://www.africanfabric.co.uk/
They may be able to connect you to relevant people, or alternatively they look like they supply some amazing African prints anyway.
