    When I see fabric I like, I usually purchase it, keep it till I find a style.
    My CirkPicks was no different. Immediately I saw the batakari strips on Jemila’s Instagram post, I wanted this one.
    I was very impressed with the fabric. It was exactly as was represented on Instagram. The fabric came with a handwritten note (loved it) which had well wishes and the meaning Suhupieli; happiness in Dagbani.
    Very great customer service from Ms. Abdulai!
    I still do not have a style for my Suhupieli fabric and I am very open to ideas. Kindly hashtag CirqPicks if you have any ideas to share. Thank you (:

    Color/ Design: the blue is a rich marine blue and the pattern is exactly as pictured,

    Texture: this fabric is very tightly knit but still has a lot of movement. I used it to make a top that had draped sleeves and it fell perfectly.

    Stretch: The fabric does not stretch much but that is the nature of most types of hand wovem fabrics, as such it was sewn to my specific body type and contours quite well to shape

    Weight: For a traditionally hand woven west african fabric, this is definitely light (lighter than kente or batakari) but durable and of high quality.

    Customer Service: The cloth was available upon purchase with various methods of delivery and pick up. My package came wrapped and in a gift bag with a hand written card. Personal touches add value and connect me to the brand.

    I LOVED the print and the top it made and my only complaint is that there was not more for me to make a full outfit. Looking forward to a restock.
