Product reviews

East of Africa is a fabulous store and this was the second time I purchased their high quality fabric. Such lovely designs. Thank you. Highly recommended.

CJ, January 2022

Love these Maasai Earrings a lot. Excellent seller. The hard part is resisting the temptation to buy more…

Susan, December 2021

This is my third length of fabulous hand-printed and hand-dyed BATIKI fabric from this wonderful shop. The cotton fabric is of very good quality, sews like a dream, and is perfect for stylish, eye-catching summer dresses. Furthermore, delivery is extremely prompt and efficient. I couldn't be happier! Highly, highly recommended - 5 stars every time from me!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
