Date: 2nd and 3rd of July 2016
Venue: Safat’s place – 12, Odunuga street off Osho street Opebi Lagos
Time: 10 am to 7pm

Back to today’s post, I am again excited to bring our Star bride to be to you in person of Miss Omolara.

Beautiful Omolara contacted us requesting for a beautiful and affordable fabric for her introduction ceremony which is a ‘pre-traditional  wedding’ ceremony in Nigeria where families of intending couples meet with each other to make plans for the wedding of their children. I must say its a big deal here!

So you know she has to look her best as she will be the cynosure of all eyes and will be meeting some of her groom’s extended family members for the first time.
We sent options to her as per fabrics, color and Accessories combinations. And she finally settled for the peach on peach with gold accessories which turned out so beautiful and elegant.
Her boo also got a cream fabric with the peach asooke and they both slayed!

Let’s see the evidence in pictures from the introduction ceremony:

Again, I will like to say massive congratulations to Miss Omolara and her boo. Your home is blessed and your star will continue to shine. I love you!

Her mum also got a tulle lace from us.
Looking forward to styling you for your traditional wedding and friend’s Asoebi soon.

Cheers,

Modupe

P.s: Don’t forget to turn up at our pop up shop this weekend.

THEASOEBIJUNKIE FABRICS

LOOM ASOOKE

Hello Gorgeous People,
Today’s post is about the ancient and very famous Asooke fabric.
The Asooke fabric is known all over the world and has been infused into contemporary fashion by various fashion designers.
It’s is locally woven here in Nigeria and some other parts of Africa in fact we now have Asooke fabrics from China! You know the Chinese people can produce or replicate anything in the world but when it comes to the Asooke fabric, the best is from our local African weavers.

The regular Asooke that we know normally come in stripes. A set of Asooke has 8 stripes in the pack which can be used to make gele, ipele (for a woman) and one or two caps (for a man).
Three stripes of the set is stitched together to make one gele (Head gear), four stripes is stitched together to make one ipele (for the shoulder) and the remaining one will make a cap or two depending on the length of the Asooke.
The regular length of  Asooke is 90 inches and each stripe width is about  4inches.

But now the fashion world is improving and evolving all over the world and the Asooke fabric is not left out hence my post today on the LOOM ASOOKE.

Its a new dimension of weaving Asooke fabric which a lot of  people do not know about. The Loom Asooke is woven straight into the gele (headgear) size which means you don’t need to stitch 3stripes together like I explained earlier. Its just like ready to wear!
And also the ipele is made straight into the normal size, no stitching/joining involved.

The loom Asooke is the rave of the moment for those who know and it can be made as plain, multicoloured, metallic ,soge or even onjawu.
You can also ‘spice ‘ it up by applying blings on it or tack some beads or sequence on it in various design as a bride or party guests.

Let’s look at some samples of the loom Asooke and don’t forget to call/WhatsApp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com to place orders for your Loom Asooke for personal use and party Asoebi quantity in whatever color or combination.
