What to Look for When Buying Wholesale Dhashiki Shirts

March 17th, 2013

The dashiki is a beautiful and colorful shirt that originated in many parts of West Africa. The colors on these vibrant and cultural garments have meanings and are worn for different kinds of occasions. Colors often used in traditional African weddings are purple and lavender or blue. Purple symbolizes African royalty while blue represents peace, tranquility, and love. Black and red are usually worn at funerals because they epitomize blood, sacrifice, and communion with past relatives.

Dashiki shirts found their way into American fashion during the 1960s.

What is black soap and how is it made?

February 4th, 2013

Black soap goes by a number of different names including African black soap, Anago Soap, Alata Simena, Ose Dudu, Duchi, Alata Soap, and Anago Samina. Whatever you call it, black soap can do wonders for skin health. It has been known to help with acne, excess oil, rashes, and blemishes. It’s an effective makeup remover and can prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also multipurpose, safe to use on face, hands, body, and even as a shampoo for hair.


Black soap originated in Africa. It is often associated with Ghana, but is made in many parts of West Africa. Tribes often have their own secret blend of oils and cooking techniques that have been passed down through generations, leading to variations in color . Despite its name, not all black soap is black. It can be dark brown or even beige in color.


Traditionally, black soap is made by ash from the leaves and bark of local plants. Shea tree bark, plantain, palm leaves, and cocoa pods are sun dried, then put in a kettle to be roasted. To ensure proper color, texture, and smell, the temperature must be kept even and constant. Palm oil, coconut oil, Shea butter, cocoa pod powder, other oils, and water are added. The mixture must then be stirred for at least a day, then set and cured for two weeks.


Vitamin A, vitamin E, and iron are in black soap due to the plantain leaves, and the Shea butter content can offer modest UV protection. It is excellent for people with sensitive skin, for babies, and for the elderly.
