Today I thought about African fashion,and my mind wondered at what our ancestors could be wearing in their time.The truth is because we do not keep information , we may not know.But then a friend of mine once showed me a collage of textiles he made .There it was,the grass-like kind of cloth I read about on Encyclopedia .com. I am so glad that someone is trying to immortalize our history . Please if you are a lover of art and you want to feel this textiles you are welcome to check out Femiartwarehouse.org for more information.
Fashion is a great part of history.Come to think of it ,”wearing Raffia”,won’t it be itchy? knowing that someone in those days will be feeling so proud to have a lot to wear on different occasion, and they could even paint it with colors for beautification. I am sure there’s a lot they could have done with them.
