Ankara Headwraps

Ankara headwraps can be worn by everyone from babies to grannies and spread across tribes and regions – blacks to whites. Africans aren’t left to style this fashion piece as there are lots of ways you can recreate these stunning wears to suit your taste.

The Best fabric types for making headwraps are cotton and wool materials or even a blend. The idea is that the headwrap has to be made from lightweight material so it doesn’t feel like a burden to your head.

Silk headwraps are very fashionable and are currently dominating the trends in headgear. They are also the best option when it comes to hair care. But also, it’s important to have a cotton cap underneath as nylon and silk tend to easily fall off the head.

The cotton fabrics we present to you are (drumroll! 🥁) Ankara headwraps!

Why Ankara Headwraps?

African ladies especially in the Sub-Saharan African regions would strongly agree with me that cotton headwraps are best for protecting and keeping the hair cool during the hot weather. Silk and nylon headgears are somewhat protective but they can retain heat.

With this heat buildup, the hair can get very itchy quite fast.

And even if you’re not African or reside in the colder regions, you can also use these Ankara headwraps to keep your hair stylishly. Also, they offer a bit of warmth when there’s cold.

Artfully styled headgears are worn as traditional attire known as “Gele” by Yoruba women of Nigeria and as “Duku” by Ghanaian women.

I almost went to Central Saint Martins for fashion design. I deferred for a year when I graduated high school so that I could go model and make some money and immerse myself in the fashion industry for a year.

In India we are creating mainstream hip hop music, than what real rap music is. The lyrics aren’t that personal, since most of the music is catering to Bollywood. It’s just trivial. It’s a fashion here.

There has been a change in men’s attitudes toward their clothes. Men are more aware of fashion; they’re not afraid of it.

My mother used to dress me in quite good-taste clothes, and I really wanted things that were sparkly and spangly and trashy and nasty. I don’t know if I ever chose fashion; it was just there in me.

I simply think that water is the image of time, and every New Year’s Eve, in somewhat pagan fashion, I try to find myself near water, preferably near a sea or an ocean, to watch the emergence of a new helping, a new cupful of time from it.

Being in the world of fashion you have to be very self-absorbed, and you are surrounded by people who are very self-absorbed.

Having a plan enabled us to keep our hope alive. Perhaps in a similar fashion, people who are in their own personal crises – a pink slip, a foreclosure – can be reminded that no matter how dire the circumstance, or how little time you have to deal with it, further action is always possible. There’s always a way out of even the tightest spot.

Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in… I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards… It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything.

I love acting. I do it as a hobby. If I was able to have that as a career… Hopefully the fashion thing is a stepping-stone. I was so worried when I started modeling that it would hinder my chances of acting.

I like the ritual, the liturgy of a well-crafted, emotional fashion show. I will never be jaded with this side of fashion. The catwalk is pure anthropology, something like an esoteric encrypted parade. It can totally be replaced but it will be missed.

I don’t think I have a sense of fashion. But I do have an aesthetic, which I feel is an offshoot of me working in the design industry. For example, if I am mixing and matching prints on my sofas and cushion covers, I tend to do that with my wardrobe as well.

It’s interesting, but because I have my own collection, I actually almost never purchase jewelry unless it’s sort of playful, whimsical pieces that are more fashion, a little less investment-oriented. Most of my personal jewelry collection is from my own collection. The pieces that get layered in tend to be gifts from my husband.
