Item details

A beautiful new Aso-oke fabric with a beautiful combination of blue and light blue stripes. (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 referred 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 sewn together to make clothing.

It is a thick fabric which is similar in texture to denim or canvas.

This listing is for strips available BY THE METRE. The width of the strip is 6.5 inches (16.5 cm). You can order the length of the fabric strip you require from the drop-down list. Your fabric will be sent as one continuous length.

Kindly note that if you are purchasing this for a traditional/Nigerian wedding outfit (pele and gele), you will have to sew the strips together yourself. The fabric is sold as strips not the finished item.
