Collection: Angelina Collection

Textile Designer, Toon Van De Manakker created the iconic Angelina print. He based the design on a garment worn by a 19th century Ethiopian noblewoman. 

This print became popular in the 1970s in Congo and Ghana from the highlife song "Angelina" by Ghanian artists, the Sweet Talks that frequently played on the radio. This print is also known as Dashiki and it comes from the word "danshiki" or  " Dan chiki" which means Shirt in Yoruba and Hausa respectively, languages spoken in Nigeria, West Africa. 

The print was commonly used to make colorful garments that cover the top half of the body. It has since been used in America as a symbol of Africa for black history month.
