AFRICAN WAX FABRICS







LE BOUBOU AFRICAIN

Blame it on my having lived in Africa a lot, or simply on the beauty of the colors and the intricacy of the designs. I love the colorful African wax fabrics we call Boubou.


Wax fabrics have caught the eyes designers for the home as well as for fashion.

Moroso cubes add style and fun to a white space

Anthropologie dared to use boubou on traditional chairs

This homeowner decided to use a myriad of different designs

Boubou makes colorful very modern looking pillows


as well as distinctive fashion accessories

 It's so much fun fun to mix it all up

even in pint size...
