When we talk about the best fabric and fashion designs, the first countries that come to mind are, America and U.K. but if you look critically, these countries do not really have the best fabric and designs, what they do know is how to market their products effectively.
There are many other countries that have the best fabrics but unfortunately, how to market their fabrics and designs is the drawback. When it comes to the U.K., their popular way of dressing is the suit and tie but there’s nothing unique about these. Had they been developed here, we would’ve termed it, “Ntafoo Ntaade3″ but because they are foreign, we’ve decided to accept it because our colonial masters forced it down our throats.
But personally, I don’t see anything unique about the suit and tie, who even thought of such a design, to tie up somebody’s neck and call it dressing, but unfortunately, the whole world worships it.
Going through the dressing and fabrics of other countries around the world, some countries stood out with quality fabrics and designs that were amazing. For instance, do you know the Kente and Batakari from Ghana can last for 300 years? and it’s the only fabric that can’t be destroyed by cocroaches? Well! If you don’t know, now you know.

A visit to the king’s palace and you can be directed to a Kente cloth that has been passed on from generations to generations.
