ADIRE TECHNIQUES

SHARE
TECHNIQUES:


Today, there are three primary resist techniques used in Nigeria:



Oniko: this process involves tying raffia around hundreds of individual corn kernels or pebbles to produce small white circles on a blue background. The fabric can also be twisted and tied on itself or folded into stripes.



Alabere: Stitching raffia onto the fabric in a pattern prior to dyeing. The raffia palm is stripped, and the spine sewn into the fabric. After dyeing the raffia is usually ripped out, although some choose to leave it in and let wear and tear on the garment slowly reveal the design.



Elecko: Resist dyeing with cassava paste painted onto the fabric. Traditionally done with different size chicken feathers, calabash carved into different designs are also used, in a manner similar to Block printing. Since the early twentieth century, metal stencils cut from the sheets of tin that lined tea chests have also been used.
