When I was getting married, I had to choose 2 lace fabrics; one for the engagement and the other for the after party. I had typical Yoruba parents who love "Owambe". My mom is an Iya Eko, She loved parties and when it was time for her daughter (me) to get married, nothing was going to be left out concerning looks. She wanted to make sure I looked as stunning as ever. I was going to be the bride after all. Aso ebi was another thing we needed to decide on, she wanted even the Brides Maid to look their best. We eventually settled for the CORD LACE, as they are available in different colours and at different price point. And guess what, my wedding was as colouful as my mother had planned with everyone looking radiant in their different colours of CORD LACES.
Whether you are buying your own Cord Lace from Gbagi Oja in Ibadan or buying from Balogun Market in Lagos or you are buying it in London there is something for everyone. They are available in different colours as shown below.
The Cord Lace varies in texture and weight with many colours to choose from. Lace generally used to be for curtains and tablecloths but now, everyone is wearing lace. Designers make them into gorgeous dresses and sell them at over the top prices. Lace is here to stay and of course the CORD LACE is one of them.
