African Textiles As Fashion Inspiration
Textiles are a staple when it comes to styling eclectic interiors. They can be used so many different ways! Textiles are great used as pillow covers, blankets, thrown over a chair or even as curtains. But have you ever looked an African textile and thought this would make a really cool top or jacket? Textiles are, after all, pieces of fabric and have been used to create clothing since the beginning of human-kind. So while our Discover African Art textiles are gorgeous, handmade pieces and can be used as-is, they also have the potential to be transformed into the garment of your dreams. We have so many design-enthusiastic and fashion-inclined customers, that we thought gathering a few inspiring fashion images would be fun and could spark some creativity for our textiles. I personally love that long indigo coat by J. Crew or the jumpsuit by Studio 189 (center, middle images).
So go ahead and flip through these images (click on the image to make it bigger) and get inspired! Then shop our textiles to make your design dreams a reality.
Also, check out our ever-growing Pinterest page. Lots of African, tribal inspiration over there!
