Style meets Culture.

Did you know that Ankara is the name of the popular patterned cotton fabric extensively worn by Africans? Well, now you do know. Though popularly won by Africans, Ankara did not originate from Africa.

The Europeans were among the first people who started manufacturing the fabric. In fact, some of the high quality Ankara fabrics are found in Europe.

There’s only so much I can write about Ankara. One of the things I love about it is how there is an incorporation of a variety of colors into each pattern and you can add a different fabric that’s not Ankara to it. I paired this with chiffon and the outcome, beautiful!
