About the Lace Materials in Nigerian Women Aso-ebi Fashion
In Nigeria, lace fabrics are not only for tablecloths and curtains, but they are also a premium clothing material for sewing special-occasion-outfits. Outside Nigeria and Africa, most people know lace as the fabric used to sew curtains and tablecloths, and as lace trimmings on lingerie and fancy dresses. Other popular uses of lace by non-Africans include wedding dresses and some occasion wears. The case is different here, Nigerian women often wear dresses made only with lace material. Lace is a staple fabric for wedding and occasion-wears and many native-style wears such as Iro and Buba, and Bubu flowing gowns.
