Ondo in the History of Aso-Òkè Weaving in Southwestern Nigeria


  • Babasehinde Augustine Ademuleya


The Òndó people are known for their consistent use of the old aso-òkè types, over the yea. which perhaps must have influenced the thought in some quarters that the Òndó people have a long history of the narrow strip weaving tradition. This study however reveals that the Òndó indigenes are not weavers of aso-okè, the narrow strip cloth, but good merchants and patrons of the old aso-òkè types. It also attributes the sustenance of the weaving industry that thrived in the town in the early part of the 20th century to the migrant weavers from Iseyin and Ilorin.
