This is a method of making Adire which is called “Eleko”. It is done by applying starch paste made from cassava flour on the cloth. The starch resists the dye from penetrating through the cloth. The starch pastes are applied with brush or feather on the surface of the fabric or through a stencil that has been cut into a design. It will be left to dry for a while under the sun before it is immersed into a dye solution.
