The colorful printed cotton we associate with traditional West African dress goes by several names, which hints at its complexity: Ankara, Dutch wax print, and Java print. Originally produced in Holland for sale in Indonesian colonies, the fabric found a bigger audience in West Africa, where many now consider it a symbol of cultural pride. The name Ankara orginated when the Turks began producing their own version in imitation of the Dutch—Ankara (formerly known as Angora) is the Turkish capital. A patchwork of sky blue and vibrant orange decorates one side of this bag, crafted in a small studio in Nigeria. Stiffened cotton with bamboo accents and magnetic closure.

Made in Nigeria. 17"W x 11"H x 4"D.

        Lovely handbag to carry around, but I couldn't get the oil smell out from the inside of the bag. Unfortunately had to send the bag back
