Àdìrẹ is a fabric native to the southwestern region of Nigeria, traditionally made and worn by Yoruba women. Àdìrẹ means tie and dye in the language of this people, and refers directly to the know-how used to produce this fabric. Indeed, like batik, àdìrẹ is obtained using resist dyeing (although batik uses an additional technique, stamping, which allows for variation in patterns). It is recognizable by its indigo tint, that characteristic deep blue, although the colors have diversified today. Indigo dyeing is present on all the continents, but this know-how stands out in West Africa, to the point of becoming an identity process as it has developed in this region.
