African Father light fabric

African Father light fabric

My father was a great influence in my life and I loved how gentle and kind he was. He was a true gentleman and he always took pleasure in the simple things in life. I always admired his love for wildlife, birds and butterflies. He was very knowledgeable and he was a great photographer. After he died I have great pleasure looking through his slide collections. He had been born in South Africa to British parents but went back there in his early twenties to both South Africa and Nigeria. He look some fabulous photos of his life there and also the animals around him. He used proper 35mm film in those days, I was amazed at how clear and colourful the photos were. I have never visited Africa but I always remember the bedtime stories he told us of his African adventures when I was a little girl. The African Father design is a tribute to my father.

How to buy
I am officially trade only (that is why I do not show any pricing) and deal with Stockists in the UK and internationally. I do understand that you might not be near a stockist or want to deal with me personally and in this case you can deal with me direct. When you contact a stockist they should be able to sell you just the fabric or wallpaper,  some stockists offer a making up service and it is up to you if you use their services or not.
How long before I get my fabric and wallpaper
All my fabric and wallpaper is printed to order, I do not hold any stock.
The fabric takes about 7 days to get back to me, I check it and then send it 24 hour insured courier to you or your curtain maker.
The wallpaper can take a little longer from 7 to 10 days, it depends how busy the printers are.
It is possible to fast track an order but you would need to email me
