T.fore, if you’ve got any dice ankara print sitting in your closet or if you have plans of buying it anytime soon, this image guide will be a tad bit useful for future purpose.
In a brief summary, one of the Authors on Vlisco Stories “Aishatu Bello Hassan” said:
“In the Nupe Land of the North Central Nigeria, This Fabric Is a most for traditional events. It is often inherited from Parents to their offsprings.
In Ibo land (tribe) Nigeria, this fabric is called Kpulu Oka (Corn seeds). This particular fabric is so popular in Nigeria and is worn as a uniform mostly by Catholic Women Organization (CWO) in the Eastern region of Nigeria and also worn by the female school teachers”.
Although this African print fabric is a classic, overtime some newly created ones currently in the market have been reinvented with new designs like the one with red flower pattern.
It is also called KPÉKUI (small stones) in Togo, DICE in Benin Republic and Ghana and Le Petit de (the small die) in Ivory Coast.
