Ankara is commonly known as “Ankara prints”, “African prints”,” African wax prints” “Holland wax” and “Dutch wax”, is 100% cotton fabric with vibrant patterns. It is usually colorful and is primarily associated with Africans because of its tribal-like patterns and designs.
African wax prints, also known as Ankara and Dutch wax prints, are common materials used for clothing in  Africa, especially West Africa. They are industrially produced, colorful cotton cloths with batik inspired printing. One feature of these materials is the lack of difference in the color intensity of the front and back sides. The wax fabric can be sorted into categories of quality due to the processes of manufacturing.

These fabrics are normally sold in 12 yards as “full piece” or 6 yards as “half piece”. The colors comply with the local preferences of the customers. The wax prints are part of a nonverbal way of communication among African men and women, and they hereby carry their message out into the world. Some wax prints can be named after personalities, cities, buildings, sayings or occasions. The producer, name of the product and registration number of the design are printed on the selvage, protecting the design and allowing reading the quality of the fabric. These fabrics constitute capital goods for African men and women.

It is also a very versatile fabric and many items can be made from Ankara fabric such as Ankara hats, Ankara earrings, Ankara blazers, and Ankara shoes to name a few.
