The history of the African dashiki
The dashiki originated in West and East Africa and was originally a shirt covering the entire chest as well as in a much longer version called the grand
boubou. Dashikis were loose fitting but were light enough to offer protection for the sun and heat.
The dashiki has made a huge breakthrough from Africa since the African American culture struggles of the 1960's. Dashiki's first started selling from
Harlem and now find a home all over the U.S. Dashiki's are worn in movies, mentioned in print, and worn by famous people all over the world.
