A beautiful new Aso-oke fabric with a striking combination of thin blue lines against the main dark blue. It also has a chunky beige stripe running down the centre (Please note colours may appear differently on your monitor/screen).
Aso-Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) is short for Aso Ilu Oke which means clothes from the up-country. It is also sometimes refereed to as Aso-Ofi. It is a hand woven cloth made mostly by the Yoruba tribe of south west Nigeria. It is woven in strips and these strips are typically sewn together to make clothing. It is a thick fabric which is similar in texture to denim or canvas so is a very durable textile suitable for several uses. Ideal for modern applications like upholstery, home furnishings, bags and more.
This version is also referred to as ‘Onjawu’ as it is woven with perforations as an added feature. Great if you have a project that requires layering. Would work beautifully over a contrasting coloured material underneath.
You can order the length of the fabric strip you require by using the arrows above to specify quantity. Your fabric will be sent as one continuous length. The width of the strip is 5.5 inches (14 cm).
