Do you know that Adire (tie and dye) textile is the indigo-dyed cloth made in southwestern Nigeria by Yoruba women, using a variety of resist-dyeing techniques

Adire is common among the people of Egbaland in Ogun State. “Adire” means “tie and dye”. A material designed with wax-resist methods that will produce patterned designs in a dazzling array of tints and hues.

Do you know there are diff-rents primary resist techniques used in Nigeria which include;

Oniko: this process involves tying raffia around hundreds of individual corn kernels or pebbles to produce small white circles on a blue background. The fabric can also be twisted and tied on itself or folded into stripes.

Alabere: Stitching raffia onto the fabric in a pattern prior to dyeing.

The raffia palm is stripped, and the spine sewn into the fabric.

After dyeing the raffia is usually ripped out, although some choose to leave it in and let wear and tear on the garment slowly reveal the design.

Eleko: Resist dyeing with cassava paste painted onto the fabric.

Traditionally done with different size chicken feathers, calabash carved into different designs are also used, in a manner similar to block printing.
