What is a Dashiki?

Dashiki’s originated in West Africa and was traditionally worm by Africa men. Derived from the Hausa word riga meaning shirt, Dashiki’s come in many styles and colours. There are both formal and informal versions. Informal is the most common form and is a pullover style garment with a V neck collar and bright, bold patterns and colours. For the formal version the style is tailored into a full suit.

There are so many colours available that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right colour for the occasion. In Africa, blues and purples are the colours for weddings.

Blue: the colour representing love, peace, and harmony.
