This African batik blazer is made from a dark blue fabric from Southern Nigeria, West Africa. Each of the white symbols on the blazer represents a particular teaching or saying in the Yoruba language. It is like wearable art!

A blazer is a great transitional piece as it is a good way to transform a daytime look into a nighttime outfit and also seasonally, from spring to summer or even summer to winter.
