“Àríyọ̀” is a Yorùbá name for one that brings joy upon sighting.
The Àríyọ̀ book is made from Aṣọ-òkè which is also known as Sányán. This fabric is mostly indigenous to Yorùbá people. Aṣọ-òkè is mostly hand loomed and we love the combination of colours of this fabric and the little boxes that make up the pattern.
“Zuberi” is a Swahili name for one who is strong.
The fabric used for Zuberi is Ankara.
Ankara fabric are mostly referred to as African prints because of the bold prints and motifs. We particularly love the simplicity of this design, the bold red and the leaf pattern.
