Langa Lapu is Xhosa for "sun cloth", and Pru Bolus and her team aim to bring some of the abundant African sunshine and vibrant colour into your homes. Their exotic and colourful fabrics are handmade in South Africa combining our lush tropical vegetation with the African element of earth, wind, fire and water.
The fabrics are only created on the hottest days of the warmest months, with no wind to disturb the leaves. The special light-sensitive dyes do their work over a couple of hours, and only when the leaves are removed can one see how the sunlight has affected the fabric.
For this reason, each fabric is unique and as such can never be reproduced exactly. That is what makes Langa Lapu so very special.
