This summer our children learnt how to make Adire.

Adire textile is a “tie and dye”cloth made and worn primarily by the Yoruba people who live in south west Nigeria.
The name adire was first applied to patterned indigo-dyed cloth(shown above) made in the early twentieth century and then later to more colorful multi-hued clothes made from foreign imported synthetic dyes like the folded clothes below.
