Ankara recently became popular internationally as more and more people especially those of the african diaspora shared their designs over the internet. As social erupted in the past few years it has made it easier for many of us to get our hands on the fabulous print know to some as “african print”. Designers and consumers alike are able to exchange goods without ever traveling to the continent of Africa.
Though I have seen the mention of ankara print styles decline since it first hit american soil; I believe adding a few ankara pieces to your wardrobe is so necessary. They make the best statement pieces.
