“Why did she decide to go into selling fabrics? And since when has she been selling fabrics? What kind of fabrics does she sell?
“It runs in the family (if I may say). My mother was into making Adire ( Kampala ) and selling ; I grew up with the name ( Iya Alaso), just after my grandmother who was also into clothing business . So, I guess it runs in the family.” ‘Basically, Clothing is one of the 3 basic amenities for human, so it is important to wear not just clothes but good clothings” “I started selling fabrics fully in 2014, in which i have shop branches in Lagos and Abeokuta. However, I deliver worldwide.
