Authentic Adire hand  dyed the traditional way, uses patterns which denote things like peace, celebration, wealth, success, crossroads and many more subtle meanings. Its been termed  an “unspoken language”.

Jamaican Lucille Junkere  travelled to Yorubaland for an immersive experience with the Adire community .  Jamaica (and its people) at one time were used to  cultivate indigo plantations .  The threads  of indigo use in West Africa and cultivation in the Caribbeans are woven together in history . Lucille  will be talking about Yoruba indigo hand dyed fabric and its unspoken language this Friday in London. Her blog is Under The Breadfruit Tree
