Bright, playful, colorful, and unique, the print on this Adire fabric was inspired by a paint job gone awry — plus it has pockets! Adire is a traditional Yoruba textile dyeing technique that began in Southwest Nigeria at the turn of the 20th century. 

Busayo means “addition to joy” in the Yoruba dialect from Nigeria.  Michelle Olupona has successfully done that by incorporating rich wax prints of Ankara and batik – a beloved aesthetic of African fashion.
