How’s it been with you? I hope I’m not too late to catch up in your new year resolutions.
I didn’t make any resolutions per se, but for one I know I have a goal to bring back ancient trends like the Adire and make you covet it again 😀
The history of production is dated to as far back as 1930s. After which it fell out of popular interest, only to be re embraced widely in 1960s. It is traced to reflect it’s cultural origin from Egbaland.
The first Adire was produced with Teru and Elu, local dye typically in Indigo color using the resist-dying technique.
In the 21st century, however, it generally known that Adire fabric has come to take a front row seat in the world of fashion.
Now, guess what’s most intriguing. Adire fabric is now eased into different fabric types including Cotton, Guinea, silk, organza and even chiffon in as much colour range as you can imagine. This has enabled it with endless possibilities of use and styling.
Also, a distinctive look is that of the kimono. Lol. Not far fetched at all, but who would have thought?
Here’s a chiffon variety beautifully designed by Bosh into a Caribbean dress.
Tell me which look is your favourite and what fabric type and design will you rather have your Adire. I’d be right in the comments.
