Our story

You will find a beautiful assortment of handcrafted baby accessories, nursery and home decors that are created from beautifully vibrant African fabrics. The brand is a leading African inspired online shop with items designed to bring you affordable, modern, and colourful products.
Our family history gives us a rich background in a variety of cultures. We grew up in Poland in family of mixed ethnic background, our mum is Polish and our father is Malian. We were surrounded by two incredible cultures and there was always African fabric, clothes, music and food in our house. Our unique upbringing has helped us gain appreciation and admiration for the diverse cultures of this world!
We specialise in beautiful African fabrics and we love mixing these eclectic designs to create a one of a kind creation for my customers. We're inspired by the bursts of colour and unique designs available in these incredible fabrics. In 2014, we visited our African roots for the first time and instantly fell in love with the incredible wax Ankara fabric. This fabric creates so much more than a fashion accessory, it creates a work of art that is meant to inspire and uplift!
We’ve always had a passion for crafting and especially love sewing. We began sewing clothes and accessories for our-self. We love challenging our-self each and every day to learn new skills to enhance our art and business. We are absolutely in awe that what started out as a hobby has blossomed into a beautiful career.
In our free time, we love to travel and soak up the rich cultures of the countries we visited. Each culture is unique and therefore we learn something new with every travelling adventure. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me. We hope you love my creations as much as we loved creating them for you!

Did you know?

Did you know that the first African print minky blanket in the UK was created by us?

We made the first piece in 2015, it was cold and grey autumn. The person who also was involved in creating the Muffin Sisters brand was our oldest sister Fanta (mum of 4 years old son that time). She suggested us to make African print blanket with soft minky plush as she discovered that no one in Europe provides it.  So we started to look for the best quality African print patterns, which could be matched with minky. Later on, we added filling which keeps babies warm in the colder period of the year.  After a year, we developed skills to make different items like pillows, toys or bedding.

That's how Muffin Sisters story began. We are really grateful that our sister gave us the idea to create a beautiful project. Muffin Sisters aims to ease practising African culture and maintaining heritage by creating colorful nursery accessories for the next generation. We want to bring joy, happiness, and inspiration to babies and families by providing them with unique products inspired by Africa.
