The Ankara craft  from bags, shoes, accesories, home decor, gifts to handcrafted furniture has taken the world by so much storm . The beauty, charm and attractive quality involved in creating these African inspired craft using local fabrics has contributed to its world wide acceptance.
In the next series of posts, some Nigerian entrepreneurs discusses their Ankara craft business and why it has gained so much recognition.
First, I start off with Joyce Abiodun, the
versatile lady behind Delacremez Ensembles.
My name is Joyce Abiodun
Brand name Delacremez Ensembles and I make African Inspired fashion items like neckpieces , bangles, bags , notepads, hair accessories and even home decor pieces.
These Accessories are crafted with beads,leather, feathers and of course the Ankara prints.
What differentiates Delacremez Ensembles from others is the fact that I tell my own version of the African story with my craft. I also love to refer to my clients as royalty and as it stands I make sure that all our pieces are at par with royal standards.
I have always been in love with prints for as far back as I can remember and majorly loved the fact that it is versatile and can be used to make accessories that can be infused in day to day style.
My first contact with Ankara Accessories was at NYSC camp Iseyin Oyo state when we were introduced to the compulsory Skills Acquisition And Entrepreneurship programme (SAED)  I literally fell in love with prints afresh. I did on a hobby bases until sometime around 2016 when I decided to fan my interest back to life and made a full time business.
The journey so far has been interesting I have had "awwws" and "oh" moments lol. Most people are still struggling to come to the reality that made in Nigeria products are here to stay and still feel inferior rocking them. I have had my fair share of clients even though it is not as much as I want it to be **. But hey it can only get better.
Further more,  I trust in my craft I see it going places I believe that in the soonest possible future that Delacremez Ensembles is able to have it's own factory that would churn out beautiful afro centric Accessories that would be in major life style stores not only in Africa  but outside the continent as well.
