The traditional attire/ dressing of the women of Eastern Nigeria is double-tied-wrapper on a lace blouse. The two-wrapper attire is an everyday-wear for the women of Eastern and Niger-Delta part of Nigeria, which includes the Igbo women, and women of other East and South-South states and tribes including Delta state, Edo state, Rivers state, Urhobo women Ishekiri women, Isoko women, and others.
You also see this ‘Igbo style’ blouses worn by women of North-Central Nigerian states such as Kaduna, Niger state, Adamawa state, etc. – they also wear the blouse styles on double-layered wrappers. These styles of blouses are sometimes also called ‘African blouses for wrappers’, likely because it is also one of the traditional women’s fashion of other African countries (especially West Africans).
Honestly, I don’t know why people call it ‘Igbo blouses’, because the blouse and wrapper style of traditional wear is worn by women of other Nigerian tribes, aside from the Igbos. Well, that’s how some things are – the ‘Igbo blouse’ has become a sort of general name for these styles and designs of women blouses – even though other people wear them.
