The Ashanis clothing collection features women’s dresses, skirts, pants, jumpsuits and other items made with high quality African print fabrics and crafted by multiple clothing designers. The label was created by designer Asake to showcase the bold fabrics and designs of Africa and other cultures.
Ashanis designers create exceptional clothes for women, men and children who like to make a strong fashion statement. Their cotton print fabrics are created using a technique called wax printing, resulting in a batik-like print on both sides of the material.
African print fabrics are growing in popularity around the globe. High profile supporters such as Rihanna, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Beyonce and Solange no doubt are contributing to this trend.
