Everything we see has a story behind it, even the brightly colored embroidered dashiki fabrics. Dashiki originate from West Africa countries, the name derived from the Hausa word ʼdan ciki’ meaning shirt, although some call it Angelina print. It bears different cultural necessities and has mostly been used to create tunics or shirts that are worn during hot climate. Back in 1960’s dashiki was worn as a way to protest society’ s disrespect for African Americans. It was a symbol of black unity and pride indicating the return to the African roots, and demand on full rights in American society.
