The presence of woven textile in Nigeria is not one that came about as a result of slavery or colonisation; Let me educate you a bit.
According to archaeological excavations the presence of woven textile in Igbo-Ukwuwas made of fabric other than cotton now nobody knows how come but it was discovered so for those who assumed that fabrics came to Africa as a result of slavery or colonisation should wake up from their slumber because history would tell you of the importance of clothing.
Clothing is synonymous to man and designs started in Africa’s (yes Egypt was a very large kingdom and so was Mali) so when you see how sharp our fashion designers are this shouldn’t surprise you because we are creative people.
The Ankara fabric in which we have embraced as our own is made of tightly woven 100 percent (100%) plain cotton which would then be printed on.
Due to the nature of the fabric and the nature of our weather it is easy to understand why it was accepted in Africa.
Ankara is such a versatile fabric that we use it for just about anything, we can wear it to work, church for ceremonies for festivities etc, there is no limitations to the creative styles that you can pull of using this fabric.
