Well I hope that you have things planned for this weekend because I’ve got some fabulous Ankara styles that you need to check out………..
………before that, let share with you, something that would make you fall in love with the African print.
Check out these Weekend Ankara Styles That Are Just Too Fabulous.
Have you ever wondered how Europeans got to discover such intricate designs and motifs that reflect the African culture? Have you ever wondered why they tried to sell it to the Indonesian first before considering Africa?
Africans are known as world travelers, we have set our foot in every part of the world, hence spreading a lot of our beautiful culture around the globe.
The culture of course was taken and the birth of the dutch/Holland wax came about. This print was marketed to the Indonesians who had no use for it since they already had silk and so these people must have wondered, why not take it to the source, show them their culture in a different form and so the wax was accepted in Nigeria and other west African countries.
In other words we were sold something that already belong to us and the sad part was the fact that it has actually taken us a long time to come to terms with owning the fabric.
I am definitely glad that the disassociation era is now over, more and more designers both home and abroad have made sure the African print is a part of their every collection.
Why did I tell you this story, well it’s so that you would rock your Ankara style this weekend with pride that you are rocking something that is not only truly yours but a reflection of your beautiful culture.
