Both designers of this brand belong to this tribe and they share the same qualities as the Ibo people. Our choice of textile and prints comes from the love of our tribe, country and nation. The history of our bold prints is believed to stem from one prevailing theory. In the mid-19th century, the Dutch enlisted of West African men, both slaves and mercenaries to beef up their army in Indonesia. While there, these men took a liking to the local handicrafts and brought these Indonesian prints, now known as ANKARA, back to their home countries. Since then, these beautiful prints have been the predominant choice in many African Designers around the world.
