1. What is Ankara fabric?
Ankara fabric is a beautiful, vibrant fabric that is typically 100% cotton. Ankara fabric has Dutch and Indonesian origins but has been globally popularized by the African continent. Thus, Ankara is sometimes referred to as African print or wax cloth. In addition to the rich colors and patterns, Ankara is uniquely produced using a batik technique. This technique prints the design or pattern onto the cloth with wax prior to the dyeing process. This helps the Ankara fabric remain durable and more fade resistant. Ankara fabric can be used to make head wraps, clothing, shoes, hats, upholstery, etc. The possibilities are endless.
Note: Ankara fabric is often stiffer than other cotton fabrics (comparable to starched fabric). It will soften with wear. Alternatively, you may use fabric softener, at your own risk, to decrease stiffness.
