The brand’s staple Aso-Oke hand-woven cloth dates back to the 15th century. Kenneth Ize works with local weaving communities to modernise the manufacturing process and introduce the craft to a younger generation of Nigerians.
This Aso-Oke textile is hand-woven by artisans so no two pieces are identical.
Small Batch Production
This Aso-Oke textile takes time and care to make; a single piece of outerwear, all in all, takes nearly two weeks to create.
Kenneth Ize is devoted to the long established traditions of Nigerian craft and local artisanship, merging a new design aesthetic with a specifically local pre-existing handcraft practice.
