The familiar ankara or should one call it the once reject African print, has become the proverbial head of the corner and the toast of many designers. On the international scene, ankara is making waves. Call it prints or by whatever name tickles your fancy, ankara is not only making waves, it has come to stay.
The ingenuity of designers in combining prints with other fabrics as well as the rich embellishment done on ankara pieces, has made the fabric one of choice. Ankara is not only reserved for uniform at family functions, but can be done into playful little dresses and shirts that both men and women can enjoy every other day.
