Ruby Blue and Grey Aso-Oke


Modern woven Aso Oke fabric from Nigeria

A modern and striking Aso-oke fabric from Nigeria. Available by the metre OR as a bundle. Options described below.

Aso-Oke (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) is short for Aso Ilu Oke which means cloth from the up-country. It is a hand loom, woven cloth made mostly by the Yoruba people of south-west Nigeria. It is of a similar tradition to woven Kente cloth from Ghana and is woven in strips which are traditionally sewn together to make clothing.

It is a thick fabric which is similar in texture to denim or canvas. This makes it a great choice for upholstery projects, cushions, totes, bags and more. It also works well as a trim for larger projects.

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 just under 7 inches (18 cm). You can then cut and sew together the pieces for your own specific needs. Use pinking shears and cut across the width of the material. Avoid cutting along the length of the material as the weave will unravel.

Kindly note that this particular design is very thick and stiff, so bear this in mind when choosing for your particular project.

You also have the option of buying a half bundle which is 8 metres or the full bundle of 16 metres which will give you a saving compared to buying by the metre.
