Where Tradition Meets Craftsmanship

AfriQuilts began as a passion project stemming from my love of sewing, particularly appliqué work and quilting. After learning these techniques through a course, I began creating quilted wall hangings and bed quilts for personal use and as gifts for loved ones. The journey took an exciting turn when a guest house purchased one of my wall hangings for their entrance hall, sparking interest and leading to subsequent orders for both wall hangings and bed quilts.

The wall hangings and bed quilts are crafted from durable cotton and poly-cotton fabrics, ensuring they are easily washable. Inspired by the rich tapestry of South African culture, these pieces feature ethnic designs that celebrate the country’s diverse heritage. Additionally, they showcase the abundant wildlife native to South Africa. Each wall hanging and bed quilt is meticulously handmade, making it one-of-a-kind. To further emphasize their uniqueness, each piece is assigned a distinct embroidered number on the reverse side.

The wall hangings feature pockets on both the top and bottom of the reverse side, allowing for easy insertion of a pole for hanging on a bracket. While the bed quilts carry the same thematic elements, they are designed with simplicity in mind, omitting buttons, beads, and other intricate details found in the wall hangings.
