Now this is a new one for Africa Fashion Guide!

On and off the catwalk, bold African prints are a current strong fashion trend and now your baby buggy can also join in the fashion adventure.  Making your buggy stand out from the crowd has never been easier or more fun now that Bootie Boutique has launched a stylish collection of interchangeable buggy hoods in bold prints.

We have had wax print used for shoes, mens hats, baseball caps and even umbrellas but when we came across this modern usage of the fabric we just had to feature it. Love this idea.

This Africa-chic buggy hood is currently available for the Bugaboo Bee Plus model and they’re looking to expand the range into other popular selling buggies which have removable hoods.

The print names in the collection are all inspired by exotic destinations on the traveller’s trail, reflecting the genuine African wax print fabric that is used to make the hoods.  Transform your buggy into a mobile urban safari for you and your baby without even getting on a plane.  And since babies’ vision is attuned to see high contrast images best, these bold designs get the baby vote too.  The saturated colours and stand-out prints help to stimulate and engage the most precious of passengers.

Bootie Boutique founder, Kirsty Kissell sports the Serengeti on her pushchair.

“In my corner of South London, pavements are heaving with lookalike pushchairs, but this gets heads turning everywhere.  It brings a smile to people’s faces and brightens up the dullest of days.”

The hoods are all made in the UK, promoting local production.  These unique and stylish hoods are available to buy online at www.bootieboutique.com
