About the Ankara Style

Besida carries a selection of handcrafted dresses made in the Ankara style from artisans in Benin City, Nigeria. 

Ankara is a print fabric recognizable for its bold, graphic patterns in bright colors. Fabric printers use leaves, flowers, and various other motifs based on natural elements to create unique designs and patterns.

Besida combines this unique African fabric with modernity by crafting dresses, tops, and bottoms in the latest styles using Ankara fabric. This way, women of African descent can stay connected to a facet of their culture through ready-to-wear pieces available online.
