Talking drums delivering a message. A race through bush paths as the beat speeds up. A dip in the river and a bit of excitement. The king has summoned you into his "afin" (palace). Wrap yourself in your indigo blue. Put on rest, your sense of honor and humility too. You never know what might be bestowed upon you.
-The Perfect Mirror
The Ankara No Wahala Pouch Clutch with a T-bottom is a tribe favorite for a reason. With multiple uses, the clutch serves well as a grab and go bag; accessory or pencil case and cosmetic travel bag; while remaining on-trend. Constructed of a durable material with a zipper closure. It is also imprinted with the "Chosen" typography.
Inspired by the vintage seal indigo stonewashed blue Ankara wax, may this print bring you a sense of rest, resolution and honor in your own place and calling.
Designer's Journal Entry:
The word Wahala in the Yoruba language of Nigeria means “trouble”
Over time, this popular term “No Wahala” has been adapted into the Nigerian Pidgin English dialect to mean no problem, no worries, no trouble, or no stress!
See, I have a lip-smacking appetite for period pieces and the ancient traditional Yoruba movies set in the "afin" (palace) of the king used to bring me quite sizzle and spice. Was it the dramatic myths and legends or just seeing all those women wearing their monochromatic indigo blue patterned wrappers? From the queens to the servants, this was a trend!
