I’m currently loving the tribal/aztec prints that are popping up everywhere, but I’m having the hardest time finding material!! Anybody have websites where I could possibly find some?

here’s what I’ve found so far.

Thanks!

    Try african fabric sites like http://www.voguefabrics.co.uk . There’s a dutch company too that does a lot of african wax fabrics, if you google that or “wax print fabrics” you’re bound to find some more. (Wax fabrics, i found out, has nothing to do with wax as such, it’s a printing technique where prints are laid on prints :-) ) Watch out though as they tend to come in 6yard lengths as they are actually for african outfits a bit like saris in some ways.

      Wow, £50 for one lot, some of them 70! – On Dalston Market here in London these are sold for 5 or 6 quid, some 12, the most amazing choice of colours and patterns. Obviously they don’t sell online, maybe I should have started a business…
      I saw some navajo fabric in B&J fabrics in New York, can be ordered online. It’s all wool though

      And lots of ikat

      I guess a journey to London, getting round there for the day, stopping for coffee and food plus one million ways to spend money here wouldn’t make the market-fabric so cheap anymore either…. But if you’re interested, there are plenty of places to get this kind of fabric here. http://www.youafrica.com/African_London.html. – But there might be something in other bigger UK cities, too.

    Oh man, I wish I could go to London!! I’m over here on the west coast of the US, just dreaming of someday going to the UK. Thanks for the info though, I will keep those sites in mind (the prices aren’t bad once you consider that you’re getting 6 yards of material!)
