It was during an experimental session that NKWO discovered a new weaving technique by using old strips of denim. They dubbed it "Dakala cloth"; a new type of textile that appeared to look like a traditional handloom woven cloth with a distinctively West African feel. The Sweet Knot Skirt, made from this cloth, is a midi-length pencil skirt, designed to be worn low on the waist. It features signature knot details, fringed flax and recycled mirror beads. Wear with a half-tucked oversized cotton shirt for a lunch appointment.

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
