While Sarima Creations also designs other types of western and African clothing, its niche area or specialty is in designing clothing with Ankara print.
Ankara refers to a method that is used to create prints on fabric. It is usually printed on 100% cotton and features bright colors and interesting patterns that often characterize unique African clothing. According to research and reliable sources, the method of creating Ankara prints is influenced by Batik.
In the recent period, Ankara has become a global trend and the colorful fabric that is now revolutionizing international fashion.
It has become the preferred choice of the rich and celebrities due to the elegant creativity of the designers who specialize and promote Ankara fashion. Industry insiders say Ankara; the distinctive African print fabric has now transformed from cultural attire to a thrilling wardrobe that everyone must-have, especially right now that the spotlight is on Africa.
