The Adire fabric is popular among the Yoruba people as it also originates from them in the Nigerian context. Adire making involves a variety of resist dyeing techniques to create a single piece, implying a lot of hard work. Nike Davies Okundaye is renowned for popularizing this textile across the world. Irrespective of the difficulties she encountered at a young age, she has become one of the most influential female artists from Nigeria. Her work "cycle of life" tells a great deal about the different symbolisms in the Adire Fabric.
