Almost every woman dreams of a perfect wedding day from age 13, we fuss about the right wedding dress, the right weather, the right crowd and the right vows. We fantasize of all the color blends for the day, wishing for a fairy-tale spotless day in the arms of the man who means everything to us. Because of our rich culture and tradition, usually this big day comes into reality with the colourful and trending Aso oke.
Aso oke is the traditional wear of the Yoruba’s (the tribe of the southwest people in Nigeria, Africa). The Yoruba’s are the second largest tribe in Nigeria after the Northerners. Aso-Oke is a cloth that is worn on special occasions by the Yoruba’s usually for chieftaincy, festivals, engagement, naming ceremony and other important events. Cloth weaving (Aso-Oke) started centuries ago amongst the Yoruba’s but predominantly amongst the Iseyin’s (Oyo-State), Ede (Osun State) and Okene Kogi State. The fibres used for weaving are either locally sourced or brought from neighboring states (northern parts of the country).
