Nsu Bra pattern first appeared in African markets in 1960. It was originally called ‘the Disc’ and was designed in 1936 by Mr Piet Snel, a Dutch fabric designer at Vlisco. The design was derived from a very old drawing made in 1924. Vlisco is like the couture of African print. They are the originators of West African print (Ankara). -Via Style Me Ankara.
