Baba Fishees was started in October 2018 by Sarah Hubbard. As long as she could remember she loved beautiful things, always drawn to colour, creativity and abstract art, design and photography, her love of animals started when she was very young and continues. Furthermore, her love of expressive and descriptive words and a endless sense of humour keeps her motivated. Design is not just a hobby, you could say "it is just part of who I am and what comes naturally to me".
We are very much inspired by our African continent, its natural beauty, wildlife and fauna. We love Africa and all that it offers.
Beautiful high quality cottons is a mantra not a negotiation, we struggled to find prints that we loved, so we commissioned, sourced and set about printing our own fabrics - wow, how much fun are we having. We work with local South African knitting mills who have decades of experience in the cotton market.
