Run, don’t walk to pick up some of this truly high quality fabric! I purchased Adaku’s book as it’s no longer easily available in Canada, and I thought I would treat myself to a few “remnants” as well. My order went out in the mail the same day, and it only took a couple of weeks to get to Canada. I was excited to get the book, but truly floored by the fabric! The colours are so much more vibrant than the website suggests, and the hand of the fabric is crisp, thick and tightly woven. I cannot wait to get these into the washing machine and start cutting into them. There is SO much fabric in a remnant piece - you can likely use one to sew up your favourite short sleeve/cami top and definitely for many projects in the book. Will happily order from Adaku again - I’m already thinking about that pants pattern and some more fabric!

Can’t speak highly enough of Dovetailed, the order arrived in really good time, beautifully packaged and the fabric is of great quality. I just used it to reupholster some furniture and despite some poor stitching on my part, which meant I had to unpick the thread and restitch it, the fabric didn’t fray or snick. Will be ordering again from here for sure!

This is the second time I’ve ordered from Dovetailed. The fabric is good quality and lovely vibrant colours. I was so impressed with my first order (The Priscilla T-Shirt kit) that I’ve ordered more fabric to make another and bought the pattern book for more inspiration. I’m now spoilt for choice! Thank you Dovetailed.

New Book - Sewing with African Wax Print Fabric. This is a fabulous book. You expect nothing less from African Wax print fabric, and that is to wow you with their brightness, design and their story. But this book for me has added accessibility to how the fabric can be used. The pattern selection offered here has incredible diversity from beautiful simple and feminine clothing to a wonderful selection of accessories.

I am a returning customer to Dovetailed. The reason I bought again is simply because the quality of material is superb and customer service is excellent. Don't be tempted to go anywhere else for your African Wax prints... they just aren't up to the standard and quality of Dovetailed - the patterns and vibrant colours are amazing. . And if you like first class customer service and also like to support small businesses then buy from Adaku at Dovetailed... you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to create beautiful items with my material.

Facebook Recommendation November 2020

Thank you so much for my beautiful fabric, which has just arrived. Excellent service and fast delivery. Carefully and beautifully packaged, with the Starmix surprise! A lovely touch. I've put the fabric straight into my washing machine so I can use it as soon as possible. The colours are so bright. I'm very pleased with the fabric quality.

Google My Business 5* Review October 2020

I bought some fabric cuts through the Etsy shop that turned out to be much more beautiful in real life than in photos. The prints are vivid and bright and the fabric compact and sturdy. The fabrics arrived in Italy in a few days, in two elegant and well-finished packages, with a nice gift.

I have just received my birthday treat of gorgeous African Wax Pint from Dovetail. It arrived in New Zealand within 2 weeks, during COVID, so I was very pleased with that. The fabric is even more divine "in the flesh" and presented beautifully as every birthday treat should be. Arohanui ( big love) from NZ

Google My Business 5* Review September 2020

Some of the best quality cottons I have seen in the entire show. I love that the fabric is printed on both sides.
