About Ankara Cloth: The African Cloth

For the benefit of those who don’t have an idea about the origin and history of this fabric, ankara is the name of the popular, patterned, cotton fabric extensively worn by Africans. Some call it ankara print, ankara wax, or simply ‘wax’ or ‘print’. Ankara is synonymous with ‘traditional wear’ in Nigeria. Popular brands of this fabric include: vlisco ankara wax, uniwax, Ghana wax, English wax, Dutch wax, Nigerian wax, woodin print and a whole lot of other African print fabric brands.

Because this fabric is commonly called the ‘African cloth’, one would think that it originated from Africa. Thing is, it did not – the Europeans were some of those that started manufacturing the fabric that we all now know as ‘ankara’. In fact, the ones regarded as the high quality ankara are made in Europe – with Vlisco’s Hollandais being one of so-called best ankara wax.
