Popularly known to be used by the Yorubas, aso-oke fabric is hand-woven and is commonly used during weddings as it sets the couples apart from the guests.
Many couples after the wedding, abandons their aso-oke. Just like people who use it keep it away until they need it again. While some people don’t even use theirs anymore.
Rather than dispose, Adejoke Lasisi is recycling them to make other beautiful items like shoes, hats, napkins, bangles, among other things.
She speaks to BBC Yoruba about this.
