STRIPES OF TRADITION – Introducing Urbanknit’s Listra Clutch

Listra Clutch

Urbanknit launches a new collection of handcrafted clutches. The envelope-style purse is known as the Listra Clutch and is made using vintage versions of the Nigerian fabric known as Aso-Òkè.

Listra Clutch
Aso-Òkè (pronounced ah-SHOW-kay) is a hand loomed cloth woven by the Yoruba tribe of south west Nigeria. It is usually worn on formal occasions such as coronations, festivals, weddings and funerals. It is considered to be special and symbolic with certain colours and motifs appropriate for specific occasions.
Its history, texture, colours are unique and make the Listra clutch a small part of a larger more elaborate and intricate picture. 

The Listra clutch is also available in Ankara and Adire.
