  • Is the colour true to the photo?
    We do our best to ensure that our photos are as true to color as possible. However, due to inconsistencies of various monitors, lighting sources, digital photography, we cannot guarantee that the color you see on your screen accurately portrays the true color of the product. Screen images are intended as a guide only and should not be regarded as absolutely correct.
  • I am concerned the African wax fabric is quite stiff
    When we visit our suppliers, we try to get the softer fabrics for our skirts. If we see one which we think is a bit stiff but we love the print, we soak the fabric in water for 24h. The fabric will also soften with time.
  • Do you sell Elastic Skirt or the Great Big Bag made to order?
    We only purchase a few yards of fabrics at a time in order to avoid waste. Get in touch with us at or send us a message via the contact form so we can chat about it and let you know if we have some fabric left to make it for you.
  • Why are they so few skirts per fabric?
    We visit our African fabric suppliers in the Bronx and Manhattan about once a month to handpick our fabrics. To limit the waste, we purchase a few yards at a time. Often those aren't available at our following visit...Sometimes they are!
  • How long does it take to make a wrap skirt made to order?
    A wrap skirt take several hours to make. As we are a small team, we ask for 10-12 business days to produce it as we might get several to make. However we will try our best to have it ready asap.
