During the Holiday I was reminded that the Ankara fabric has always had a place in our home.
Growing up, the Ankara already had a place in our home, my father used to buy six yards of fabric and we would share it amongst ourselves, we could either choose to sew something “native” like a six pieces skirt and a blouse or we could go with a simple style like a shift or maxi dress.
Already, the love for the Ankara had already been built in by my parents; I remember admiring the patterns of the fabrics I loved.
somehow back then many of the motifs and drawings were a bit more intricate than the one’s we see now.

I can’t remember what I assumed back then, but I know I loved to trace the designs with my fingers.
Thankfully. I wasn’t ever disappointed with the type of Ankara fabric my parents got, I always thought the colours were fascinating.
I did have fabrics I loved more than others but I wasn’t overly sad even when they bought the Ankara fabric that had brown undertones.
These days, the designers of the ankara print now have a brighter effect, hence making it irresistible.
The age of buy things abroad “only” is slowly coming to a halt as more people are in tune with the current “buy 9ja” situation.
This is trend is what took the Ankara fabric to levels beyond levels in the country.
