ADIRE DESIGNS

SHARE
Most of the designs are named, with popular ones including the jubilee pattern, (first produced for the Silver Jubilee of George V and Queen Mary in 1935), Olokun ("goddess of the sea"),Sunbebe ("lifting up of the beads") and Ibadandun ("Ibadan is sweet").



Nigeria is also known for its two-tone indigo resist designs, created by repeat dyeing of cloth painted with cassava root paste to create a deep blue; the paste is then washed out and the cloth dyed a final time. Quality cloth is dyed 25 or more times to create a deep blue-black color before the paste is washed out




Additional forms of indigo resist-dyeing exist in other parts of West Africa; for example, the Bamana of Mali use mud resist, while Senegalese dyers use rice paste rather than cassava root. And the Ndop of Cameroon use both stitch resist and wax resist.
