However, the 1960s marked a new period of innovation in handcrafted cloth production in Yoruba land.


With the growing availability of chemical dyes from Europe, there was a revolution in colour and techniques which attracted the Nigerian fashion designers who adapted the designs to print high-quality cloth using imported colour-fast dyes in colours other than indigo. New multi-coloured adire utilized a simple technology and became a backyard industry so that the markets filled with the new adire.


Hot wax or paraffin was substituted for the indigenous cassava paste as a resist agent, and designs were created by simple techniques including tie-dye, folding, crumpling, and randomly sprinkling or splashing the hot wax onto a cloth prior to dyeing. Today the colouring and dye business has gone so popular and is now adopted by non-Nigerians both in Africa and other continents of Africa. Introducing technology to this market.
