The Ankara fabric has not always been the 'it' fabric, it emerged as a fashion staple when our indigenous designers got creative with their designs made with the Ankara fabric and showcased them at international fashion shows.

It beats me that, in-spite of all these, some people still do not patronize products made with the Ankara fabric. The reasons for this are varied as well as numerous but here is one good reason why we should patronize these products. When you buy these Ankara products, you help keep money in the country.Why send your money to some transnational corporation based in another country, thereby making their economy prosper when you can spend the money in the country, help develop the local industries and still look gorgeous! That's how you create the much needed jobs we cry about on a daily basis. That's how you take graduates off the streets. That's how you prosper your economy.
This highly versatile fabric got its name from the Ankara people of Turkey who produced a more affordable version of the Dutch Wax - another name the Ankara fabric is known by. In East Africa, the fabric is known as kenga and in Zambia Southern Africa, it is called Chitenge.

One thing though, cannot be contended with, and that's the fact that the Ankara fabric has become enmeshed with our culture.
Over the years the use of the Ankara fabric has gone beyond just cloths to other fashion items like shoes
