Advantages of black-and-white African fabrics


We often praise the bright colours and vibrancy of African fabrics. However, not all African textiles feature bright hues. Several are available in black-and-white colour schemes. But what are the advantages of these starker, more monochromatic fabrics? For today’s article, we’ve compiled a list of the ways they can be used in order to demonstrate their benefits. You might be surprised by some of them.

1. Making a bold statement

Black-and-white colour schemes combine very well with bold African patterns. This combination is usually bold and very striking. While vibrant, colourful African fabrics project a sense of joyous, exuberant energy, black-and-white ones project a sense of razor-sharp refinement and poise. Like their polychromatic counterparts, these fabrics’ patterns lend them a sense of energy. However, the black-and-white colour scheme makes this energy appear more contained. You can therefore use these fabrics to create an outfit that makes a bold statement: “I am dynamic, powerful and in control.”

2. Cultivating a dignified air

For certain formal occasions, such as important meetings or high-class fund-raising events, it’s important to appear dignified and stately. Black-and-white colour schemes always look quite dignified. Of course, it’s possible to create a highly respectable outfit using more colourful fabrics, too: using black-and-white fabrics just makes it easier. Bright colours are better when you need to look friendly and approachable; black and white are better when you need to look statesmanlike.


3. Creating an all-purpose outfit

Black-and-white colour schemes go with everything. As a result, a black-and-white garment is easy to accessorise and can be worn in almost any setting. However, due to the detailed designs featuring on most African fabrics, a black-and-white outfit made from these fabrics will never look generic. In short, these materials can be used to create an outfit that looks distinctive but suits any occasion.

You may never have considered monochromatic African fabric before. Why not try something new today? Try wearing black-and-white African fabrics.
