We have a collection of modern Adire fabric which are a contemporary design twist on traditional African tie-dye fabric. Great for clothing, accessories and any craft projects you have on the drawing board!
This fabric is hand-drawn and hand-dyed in Nigeria and consists of traditional Yoruba symbols each with a name and story. The stories are often words of advice from the elders, or a means of documenting social, economic and environmental conditions. The fabric is therefore like a piece of Yoruba art.

Traditionally, these were made with natural indigo dye but with the advancements in dye and textile technology, they can now be produced in pretty much any colour desired. This comes with the added advantage that the colours are fast and not run.
Available as 5 Yard bundles or smaller 2.5 Yard bundles in our batik section. Do get in touch if you have any questions.
