A handmade resist and tie-dyeing cloth originating from the city of Abeokuta, Nigeria has now become wide spread production by Yoruba women of south western Nigeria.

Our Afrik Collections is produced from Ankara fabrics. Ankara commonly known as African prints, is a 100% cotton fabric with very vibrant patterns and colours, primarily associated to Africa because of its tribal-like patterns and motifs.
The Ankara fabric is known for its colourful African prints, and is deeply associated with African clothing. One of the best things about Ankara fabric is the intensity of its African prints does not change compared to other printed textiles that fade quickly.
The vibrant, hand-loomed cotton cloth created by the Yoruba people of Western Nigeria popularly called Aso Oke is the source fabric for the production of the Afri-Denim collections. Afri-Denim as a short form for African Denim derived from the outlook of the western denim fabric, which is similar in the final outlook of the Aso Oke fabric when finished in production.
This rich fabric both in texture and colour over the years is being denoted a cloth of high status among the Yoruba people. While maintaining the richness, we work with our artisans to lighten the weight which makes it accessible to produce trendy and fashionable designs for children, It simply is tradition infused into fashion.
The Zucch Collections provides us the opportunity to avail children fashion designs and styles produced from fabrics that are typically not of the African origin and culture, such as crepe, silk, cotton, denim, cashmere, etc.
The existence of clothing and other fashion products from these fabrics locally, and a choice among users makes it expedient for us to create this collection on our children fashion brand.
