A IS FOR ANKARA..MY POINT OF VIEW.

A sight to behold.Yesterday I was at 1st Impression Designs at The Mall,Westlands getting my ankara on.I just wanted to leave the place with all these fabrics.. too bad I couldn’t 🙁

It’s called Ankara in west Africa,kitenge in East Africa.These are beautiful  native fabrics that have been used since like forever,to make clothing .They’re also used to make accessories and shoes.Ankara just recently gained popularity especially among us young people. Let’s face it..as recently as 2 years ago most of us young folks DID NOT even want to imagine ourselves wearing it.Well..i didn’t.These days,these fabrics are tailored stylishly. In the past they were associated with the older generation.These days I will rock ankara/kente/kitenge fabric gladly.It’s here to stay now and forever.In case you ever buy the fabric,here are some few ideas:
