Langa Lapu

Our Sun-Dyed Fabrics

Langa Lapu is Xhosa for “Sun-Cloth”, and we aim to bring some of our abundant African sunshine and vibrant colour into your homes. Our exotic and colourful fabrics are handmade in South Africa combining our lush tropical vegetation with the African elements of earth, wind, fire and water. Ever present are the natural forms of leaves and seeds on the fabric, using sun-dyeing,  tie-dying and screen printing techniques. Each piece is individually hand made with the support of women from The Crags community, not only for the dyeing but for the sewing up of fabric into clothing and home-ware. We sell other “naturally inspired”handcraft. such as gifts, home-ware, jewellery, baskets from the Transkei and Madagascar, other parts o Africa and the world, We particularly like to support women in business. Quilters are some of our favourite customers as they take our fabric and create other beautiful things, using their own creativity. We are celebrating our 30th year in business!

Wildside Designs

Wildside Designs are inspired by the spectacular floral diversity of the South Africa “Fynbos” the smallest but richest of the world’s floral kingdoms. Wildside is a collaboration of Lanagalapu Fabrics and artist Leigh Anne Wolfaard. Living at the foothills of the Tsitsikama Mountains of the Garden Route, the Langalapu team, led by Pru Bolus, is made up of a diverse and energetic group of women from the craggs community. The designs are all screen printed by hand, making each one unique.
