What does “dashiki” mean?

Dashiki is derived from the Yoruba word “yar ciki”, which means “shirt”. Though dashikis are African inspired, the symbolism attached to them is actually rooted in the United States.
C-U918m
In the 1960s, a time where African American cultural and political struggles were at an all time high, dashikis became popular among men and women who wanted to show their independence from Western culture. At a time when the acceptable fashion was conservative, neatly tucked shirts, the bright, bold colorful shirts, worn un-tucked, were a way for people to show pride in their African heritage.

These days n the United States, the dashiki is most popularly worn during February, Black History Month. However, no matter what time of year it is worn, the dashiki’s symbolism is a way of saying: “I am beautiful – black is beautiful – my heritage is beautiful.”

Asoke Fabric – Choose Your Own Piece!

Asoke cloth is crafted by the Yoruba people group of Nigeria and has been woven for hundreds of years in one form or another. The strips of Asoke cloth are sewn together to create a piece of fabric unique from ALL others EVER created. With the “Choose Your Own Piece” option now available, you can pick out your own piece of Asoke fabric and know exactly what you are getting– an authentic and one of a kind piece of art!m-f090spread Weaving Asoke fabric is a tedious, yet free-styled and creative type of process. At times, an artist doesn’t have quite enough of one strip and will add a totally different one to even things up. Even more artistic whimsy, pieces may come hemmed, partially hemmed, or totally unhemmed. The open work, embroidery, shine, design, textures, and color work together for a textile unlike any other that is impressive and artistic. m-f090model
Asoke cloth is very sturdy and is mostly reserved for religious rituals, funerals, and very formal occasions. A variety of patterns and colors are used in these creations and they include many different types of material such as cotton, polyester and silk.
Full size pieces approx 42″-53” wide x 60″-80” long. Handmade in Nigeria.
