The tradition of tying and dyeing cloth goes back to Mali’s Dogon kingdom in 11th century. Adire textile tie and dye came to Nigeria in 19th century.
Adire (Yoruba word meaning “tie and dye”) uses various resist-dyeing techniques. The process undergoes tying and dyeing of materials in a variety of ways to form sharp patterns in blue and white.
Historically the process was done by dyeing cloth with fermented elu or indigo leaves in large earthenware pots placed deep into the ground. The cloth was then submerged into the dye and removed so oxidisation of the cloth into the blue colour could begin. To get a more intense blue shade the cloth was dipped various times into the dye. For the shiny effect of the cloth it was further pounded with a mallet.
As well as tying the cloth before dying, the cloth could also be hand painted and natural substances such as pebbles, stones, seeds, feathers etc. used to create beautiful patterns. Stencils were used to create distinctive effects.
Adire tie and dye was originally done in indigo colours, however the use of imported colour-fast dyes, gave a variation of colours other than indigo.
Adire fabric is sold in yards.
The Adire fabric is now used for clothing, tapestries, bedspreads and many more items.
The advantages of the tie and dye process of cloth is for cost efficiency and a means to transform and renew fabrics to look new.
Historically African Wax Print fabric was manufactured by the Dutch for the Indonesian market. However it received more interest in the West African market, mainly due to its bold and vibrant colours and pattern.
African Wax Print is also known as African Print, Dutch Wax Print and now commonly referred to as Ankara (from Nigeria, West Africa).
Ankara is a common fabric used for clothing throughout Africa. Various countries and tribes in Africa have t. own colour combinations and names for the fabric.
Ankara fabric is 100% cotton. Ankara fabrics are made using the wax resist technique method of dying cloth. The wax is melted, patterned on the cloth and soaked in the dye. This process is repeated for multiple colours and pattern combinations.
