The Nigerian Collection is inspired by cloths used for ceremonial and status garments. The original cloths would have been woven from silk gathered in the wild, then augmented with threads in more vibrant hues procured from passing caravans or recuperated from other garments, as Nigerians did not produce these. The prints in this collection seek to replicate the varied sandy and beige hues of wild anaphe silk. Simoun is printed on an exceptionally heavy linen woven in a basketweave, which absorbs ink beautifully. The pattern makes it effortlessly stylish and easy to mix. It has remained a big favourite.
