These Textiles Aren't for the Faint of Heart

There are a lot of styles of clothing out there, but if you’re reading this, chances are you’re the kind of person who craves a little...more.

You don’t settle for the ordinary—you set yourself apart, daring to be different and loving every minute of it.

So what sets an outfit apart?  What makes it catch your eye?  What is it about a particular style or look that makes you stop and stare?

Often, it’s a lot simpler than you might think:  The design might be the focus for most, but what will really add that unique flair you’re seeking is usually the fabric.

There are a lot of different varieties of beautiful fabrics out there, but some of the most head-turning designs can be found in African textiles.

Take these brilliant batik shawls—even on their own, they are vibrant and full of life.  When melded with a dynamic design, they become something that cannot be ignored.

With the traditional touch of the batik, mixed with a modern design, a whole new style is born, and along with it, a whole new way of expressing yourself.

Make sure that your attire makes the statement you want it to.  Check the fabrics to make sure they’re not only high-quality, but also highly fashionable.  Put a new twist on a basic outfit by adding a splash of color, or click through our
