Ankara gained fame and became very popular this decade. It became internationally recognized by the fashion industry of Africa at large, Europe, America & Asia. Today Ankara is trending all over the world and we can see people of different  cultural backgrounds embracing this new trend. You can spot top celebrities rocking ankaras customes casually and also to big red carpet events. Also to fashion designers now use the ankara fabric to make amazing designs and styles that suits everyone.


Uses : Today Ankara is not only used to make clothes. They are also used to make accesories, bags,shoes and even umbrellas. It’s safe to wear ankara accesories with a plain outfit or a mixed one (partly patterned and partly plain)

Ankara accessories can be paired with dresses of all types, plain t-shirts, jeans and printed/patterned blouses or dresses, but be sure not to wear with bold or strong patterns because the accessories already have a lot of detailing
