Click! Clap! Click! Clap! The sound of the traditional cloth-makers in Nigeria clicks and claps in a Lagos workshop as the weavers try to keep up with the ever increasing demand both domestically and internationally.
"It shows that our cutlure is very rich and has value," explains one lady buying Aso Oke in the local market. "It brings out the beauty in us."
BattaBox reports on the business of Aso Oke in Nigeria - from the loom to the customer.
The traditional cloth must first be strung on the loom, its bright colors drawn for meters across a courtyard workshop. And at one end, Nigerian and Ghanaian weavers work to produce the beautiful Aso Oke cloth.
"Everybody wears Aso Oke," explains one market lady, whose main clients come from both the south and north-west. "Ibo, Hausa, Yoruba."
The traditional cloth can be used for Agbada, Cap, Heat Tie, Waist Wrapper and Bubba. Prices can vary from very cheap to very expensive depending on the quality but in most Lagos markets it will cost around 3000 Naira.
