Aso-oke now has a place in the modern space, and Aso-oke inspired items are now being used for gift ideas for loved ones.

It is the traditional wear of the Yoruba’s (the tribe of the southwest people in Nigeria, Africa). Aso-Oke is a cloth that is worn on special occasions by the Yoruba’s usually for chieftancy, festivals, engagement, naming ceremony and other important events.
