One of the richest sources of artistry in Africa is textiles : acontinent-wide industry that has yielded some of the most impressive woven,dyed and printed fabric themes found in the world, sometimes using methodsthat are centuries old. At Kauli we carefully source some of the mostcharacteristic antique, vintage and contemporary pieces from North, East,South, West and Central Africa in order to build highly limited collections.These releases are further divided by two categories: the Signature Series andthe Select Series. The Signature Series is composed of fabric selections thatrepresent the core aesthetic of the brand within two seasonal release periods,the rainy season, (Spring/Summer) and the dry season” (Fall/Winter). TheSelect Series is reserved for extremely rare fabrics, typically vintage and nolarger than a blanket, and can only be purchased by special request.
