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.

LOVE LOOKS LIKE US

LOVE LOOKS LIKE US

Hiya,
Hope your weekend was party filled? I have been so busy preparing for the TEXTILE FAIR LAGOS!

Am so excited about this second edition because its going to be much more bigger and better than the first one. So if you are in Lagos or will be in Lagos on the 27th of June 2015, please join us at Dehall events place beside Alausa shopping mall Ikeja and experience #fabricorgasm lol.
More details about the fair will be up in subsequent posts.

I get series of mails from brides-to be on how to combine colors for their traditional wedding in a way that both their outfit and that of their grooms will compliment each other perfectly especially when the colors of the bride’s outfit is too feminine and the groom is just the type that hate colors or a groom that will never wear anything loud but the usual monochrome(black and white) combo.

In view of this challenge, I have decided to start a new series tagged ‘ LOVE LOOKS LIKE US’ where I will be showcasing different brides and grooms in their traditional wedding outfits from different tribes in order to inspire and help you choose the right color combination together with your Man.
After which you can now proceed to choosing fabrics(thats where i come in .lol) that will make you command the attention of everyone on your Big day.
To contact me for your traditional wedding outfit fabrics, please call/whatsapp 07033040834 or send a mail to theasoebijunkie@gmail.com.
