A bit of an introduction
African fabrics/textiles have evolved in many ways over the years. Today a significant part of African fabrics based clothes or interior items are made from the highly vibrant colourful African wax prints. African fabrics however have a much more varied history. Many of the traditional fabrics are still in use in one form or another. Some traditional fabrics tend to be used for more formal occassions rather than every day wear.
Pictured above is a golden threaded traditionally woven "Aso-Oke" (translated top cloth) used amongst the Yorubas in South Western Nigeria.
