African fabrics let customers be creative and make their own styles or crafts. From hand-made African mudcloth to bold African prints, there’s a fabric for everyone. You can sell fabric easily to craft stores, at craft fairs, or online. Places like eBay and Etsy are very popular places for selling fabrics.

If you have a knack for sewing, you can even make your own products with African fabrics to sell. Some of our customers make their own hand­ made pillows, skirts, print curtains, and more!

Best Methods for Selling African Fabrics

  • Sell online. Etsy is one of the best places to sell fabric online. Many people turn there to find unique designs they cannot find in standard craft stores. You can also showcase your fabrics or handmade items on Craigslist, Ebay, Pinterest or from your own website.
  • Go to a craft fair! Many cities have craft fairs or craft festivals throughout the year - get a booth set up one to offer your fabrics or craft creations!
  • 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 display. This generates 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. Learn about the history and designs to keep conversations flowing with your customers. You can also print brochures and hand them out to your customers
