The Evolution of Ankara

The Evolution of Ankara

The origin of Ankara is not African but European. Ankara, also known as ‘Dutch wax print’, was originally manufactured by the Dutch for the Indonesian textile market. But by design, these prints drew more interest in West Africa than in Indonesia which led the Dutch to focus more on West Africa.

Overtime, Africans have embraced Ankara textile and it has become a representation of all things “African”.  Ankara has proven to be versatile and is now being put to use in the making of different fashion items (even everyday items).
