“Grown With Fashionable Grace:Jimi King”


Olujimi King is ‘baba’ of African textile  designing. I knew him about 30years ago. He’s someone I have high respect for when it comes to textile designs.

Jimi King had been there consistently  as a leader who had taken and celebrated authentic African fabrics all over the world.

Apart from Nike Davies (Oshogbo),  Jimi King is another  Pillar from this side of Africa worthy to be celebrated.

Their selling point is Indigo as portrayed in his photo  above. It’s known in Yoruba land as ‘Adire Eleko ‘. That would be a story of another day.

Beautiful and colorful array of his clothing. The legend lives on.
