Aso Ebi

Aso Ebi

Originally Yoruban, but now a common phrase, that literally means “family attire.” In traditional Nigerian wedding celebrations, family and friends of the bride and groom wear the same fabric to tell them apart. We had the privilege of attending the wedding of our son’s nanny in December 2011, so when the school marked Nigerian Culture Day in September 2012 it was fun to hear so many compliments when we wore them again.
