Isi-agu is a traditional fabric synonymous with the Igbo culture of Nigeria and over the years people from this tribe have slayed this fabric to perfection for their wedding ceremonies.
The Isi-Agu means Leopard Head is a printed fabric with a Lion or Leopard motif and symbol on it. Over the years the motif has been replaced with the image of a Lion because it is said in Igbo that “Odum na egbu agu” means a lion kills a leopard. The fabric has gone through a very interesting evolution with designers and couples bringing a new twist and infusing interesting sides to it to give it a new meaning.
Couples in the last few years couples have trusted their creative instinct to create more out of the fabric with jaw-dropping styles. Brides and grooms have taken things a notch higher as the fabric is now been sewn to be worn for their white wedding ceremony ditching the traditional white wedding dress and a classic suit for grooms.
