The Ankara fabric feels like the older sister who always wins in life. It feels weird to call this classic a trend but the fabric never seizes to have the best comeback moments year after year.

The Ankara fabric has always been a huge part of West African culture, but it has never achieved this much mainstream success as it has in the last couple of years.
