About The Pieces
Toomey & Koko presents their premiere collection- Collection I. The designs are brought to life in vivid Adire fabrics, which use a resist-dyeing technique involving indigo and other natural dyes to create bold, eye-catching patterns. Adire originated in southwestern Nigeria and the tradition of indigo dyeing goes back centuries among the women of West Africa. The collection is a unique mix of old and new, reimagining traditional Nigerian fabrics and clothing in modern styles, creating wearable, fashion-forward designs.
