Our congratulations to all DAAS graduates!

The sashes/strips are purchased at the large cloth market in Ibadan, Nigeria, known as Oje Market. The strips are called aso oke, which in Yoruba means "cloth from the hills" --or country cloth. They are hand-woven on narrow-strip looms in southwestern Nigeria--where there is a long history of textile production.
