AFRICAN CLOTHINGS

Posted on June 6, 2020 at 7:31 PM Comments comments (57)
African clothing is the traditional clothing worn by the people of Africa. In all instances except rural areas these traditional garments have been replaced by Western clothing introduced by European colonialists.
African clothing and fashion is a diverse topic that is able to provide a look into different African cultures. Clothing varies from brightly colored textiles, to abstractly embroidered robes, to colorful beaded bracelets and necklaces. Since Africa is such a large and diverse continent, traditional clothing differs throughout each country. For example, many countries in West Africa have a “distinct regional dress styles that are the products of long-standing textile crafts in weaving, dyeing, and printing", but these traditions are still able to coexist with western styles. A large contrast in African fashion is between rural and urban societies. Urban societies typically are exposed more to trade and the changing world, while it takes more time for new western trends to get to rural areas.

History of African Prints

Posted on June 6, 2020 at 6:34 PM Comments comments (9)
African wax prints actually came from the Netherlands. In the second half of the 19th century, fuelled by the industrial revolution and colonial expansion, new markets opened in the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) as well as Africa.

African Wax prints have an interesting and (literally) colourful history. West African textiles have always existed, but it was Dutch settlers in the 19th century who helped contribute to and create the designs we would recognise today.

Traditionally, the wax was applied to fabric in places that the manufacturer didn’t want the dye to penetrate, then dye is applied over the top of this to create beautiful, colourful and intricate designs. Today, a lot of wax prints are created digitally, allowing the manufacturer to produce a wider range of designs in far greater quantities, although the traditionally made fabric is still available, albeit rarer than it used to be. This method was originally used in Indonesia in Batik printmaking, although slight adjustments were made to the process to speed it up, creating Dutch wax prints.
