Bahama Hand Prints is a small factory and boutique where the tradition of hand screen-printing is still practiced.

Visitors are welcome to drop-in at the factory and watch our printers at work. It is a thrilling experience to observe yards of plain fabric being transformed into colourful art, with designs that capture the beauty of The Bahama Islands.

From the printing table, our fabric is used to create garments and accessories, which are developed in-house, crafted by our talented sewing team and introduced as a New Collection each Fall.

While leafing through a Nassau travel brochure, we found a listing for Bahama Hand Prints. Glad we saw it. The walk from downtown Nassau to this little, out-of-the-way retail store and fabrication plant was worth it. We arrived at a time when the fabrication was shut down for cleaning, but one of the owners was happy to show us the... More

We made the trek to Bahama Hand Prints and it was well worth the effort. It is a warehouse-like building at the end of Ernest Street. They were set up to print 30 yards of fabric and we were fortunate enough to watch the process. It is a locally owned company, very friendly. It is a great place for those... More

Arranged a Factory Tour with Joie & Linda for a group of quilters from CO. They were extremely accommodating and took us through the whole process of their products from design to finished products. I highly recommend this business to anyone who is interested in unique fabrics and products made from them.

I found this shop and had to add it to our trip my best friend and I were taking with her mother and aunt, as they are both big quilters and always looking for unusual and creative cloth to incorporate into their quilting. The owners were very amenable to allowing us to view the factory and get a better look... More

It's very difficult to buy anything in Nassau that is actually made in the Bahamas! At Bahama Handprints they do all of their silkscreening on site and have beautiful clothing, handbags and housewares. I have also bought some gorgeous handcarved shell jewelry there. I've been to the shop at least 5-6 times and they usually have new items and while... More

Bahama Handprints is 100% Bahamian, with the designs, printing and production all taking place in Nassau by Bahamians. The island style is subtle but bold and a fantastic touch to any household.

After seeing one of the local ads, we decided that a visit to Bahamian Hand Prints while in Nassau was a 'must do' - they have beautiful locally designed and made products and all lines so very unique. I've since ordered additional products and their service has been fantastic.

They make some of the most beautiful exotic prints inspired from the islands of the Bahamas. There is a wide selection of gorgeous handbags, tunics, upholstery fabrics, kitchen linens and more. Very helpful, friendly staff - definitely one of my favorite shopping spots!

If you are looking for innovative, beautiful and great quality Bahamian made products I highly recommend a visit to Bahama Hand Prints. All the artwork and printing of materials is done locally by their creative team, and if you ask, you can get a tour of the manufacturing operation behind the store. Great place to find something special to take... More
