Hi Bridget,  I will be in Nigeria for about 3 weeks.  Based in Abuja but I will be travelling.  I am mainly looking for Aso Oke and Adira - do you know anywhere that is producing these?  Not really looking for tourist cloths, I want to find good quality traditional textiles.

 

See that you are a teacher in Ondo.  This is great - it's important that fashion and textiles are taught to encourage young entrepreneurs.

Hi Bridget, I will be in Nigeria from next week sourcing traditional textiles and fashion producers.  I am looking for areas still producing cloths such as Aso Oke - do you know anywhere?  One area of my business is in promoting and protecting traditional craft skills, such as weaving.  I think Nigeria has much to offer in this respect. 

 

Thank you. 

Nicola.

Hi Bridget, I produce something called the Nigeria tartan based on the colours of the Nigerian flag. Ive just sold 3 yards to a lady who's making a dress for a ball later this year. This is how one of your countrywomen Alache Malia Ode who is a lecturer on International Development at London University described the cloth:
'I find your entrepreneurship inspiring, in particular the type of product. Tartans that inspire self-pride, a kind of cultural connectivity that is positive by using a product from one culture to infuse cultural relevance in another. In a subtle way it represents the entirety of what multiculturalism, interculturaism or whatever 'isms' seek to achieve.'

The Nigeria tartan is now being woven in Africa and I hope to have it woven in cotton in Nigeria very soon
