The Prince

$52.00

To Ghanaians, dashiki’s original name is Angelina. The print, like all other classic African wax print traces its roots to Ghana, Nigeria, and Togo.  While it seems to be recent trend, the print has been around since the 19th century. Its name Angelina, is credited to the highlife song “Angelina” by Ghanaian artists Sweet Talks & A.B. Crentsil.  The print’s western revolution started in Harlem in 1967 where Jason Benning coined the name dashiki from the Yoruba word “danshiki” which simply means shirt. It was a way to still give ownership of the tunic print style to its African roots.  Since then the vibrant print has given many cultural connection to their African roots and used as an empowerment symbol for and to encourage black excellence globally. Polished Cotton with wax print mixed design gives it the sexy reserve guy look. The style keeps fresh air between you and the fabric. Features a cut out neck. The best way to care for this or any other African clothing is to dry clean or hand wash in lukewarm water.
