  • Show the many ways African fabrics can be used! Along with selling the fabrics, use a piece of mudcloth as a tablecloth or as a decoration in your store! This is a great way to generate interest and draw peoples attention to the many ways fabrics can be used.
  • Tell your friends and potential customers about the different fabrics and the symbolism behind them. You can even get FREE brochures from Africa Imports.
