Into “AfriJuku”

Well, let me write a lil bit about “AfriJuku”.

Harajuku can go miles – from the brightest (very bold I must say)

Here’s a link of where I got the Image:

And Harajuku can go very dark.

Basically, you can work anything with Harajuku! 🙂

In the same way, African Frabrics can go both ways as well, from a very bright and vibrant look to a very dark /moldy look. Below are some images of a few I’ve researched about. There’s:

Vlisco with kaleidoscopic patterns, bringing out the really lively part of West/Central Africa (Using Dutch Wax Print)

“Adire” (which is a Yoruba word used for resist dyeing)

The mud cloth (A West African fabric dyed with fermented mud)

The mud cloth is also known as “Bogolanfini” in Mali, where it can get darker in colour, sometimes telling a story and used as an expression of Mali’s national Identity.
