Adire is common among the people of Egbaland in Ogun State, is probably the most reflective of its cultural origin. Abeokuta is said to be the capital of the Egba nation, and the Adire industry in Nigeria.

Adire textile is a resist-dyed cloth produced and worn primarily by the Yoruba people of southwestern Nigeria.

The Adire was first produced in Jojolaโ€™s compound of Kemta, Abeokuta by Chief Mrs. Miniya Jojolola Soetan, the second Iyalode (Head of Women) of Egba land. She then passed on the process to her children and onward to the future generations. The first Adire material was made with Teru (local white attire) and Elu (local Dye) made from elu leaf which is planted in the Saki area of Oyo state.

The 1930s brought with it innovations that allowed men to partake in adire making, which was primarily a female craft. Women remained specialists in the dyeing, tying, hand-painting, and hand-sewing done prior to dyeing, but the men became involved in decorating techniques using stitching machine and applying starch through zinc stencils. By the 1960s a growing availability of chemical dyes from Europe caused a revolution in colour and techniques. This, of course, attracted the Nigerian fashion designers who now adapt the designs to print high-quality cloth and have transformed the art of adire into an entrepreneurial craft. This craft can now be taught in institutions.

THURSDAYS ARE FOR THROWBACKS:

Lets flash back to sometime in the early 90s when Chief MKO Abiola, in the course of his presidential campaign, paid a visit to Oyo State House of Assembly which was then under the Speakership of the gentleman beside him in this picture, Rt.Hon. Barrister Akin Onigbinde.
Chief MKO Abiola later died in the years 1998, 7th of July to be precise, in the struggle to reclaim his mandate while Rt. Hon. Akin Onigbinde, PhD is now a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and doing very well in his legal career.

May the soul of the great philanthropist and patriot continue to Rest in Peace.
