This type of kente has its design closely woven together. With this type, the weavers use their hands and the loom to bring the colors and design to life.
To give you a picturesque explanation, imagine being asked to make a stunning fitting dress worthy of the Oscar’s Red carpet. Difficult right? But its end result is so worth it.
Take a look at the lady’s kente in the picture. You will see that the colors red, blue,yellow and white colors are closely woven together. The designs being close without any space in between is what we call “edwen si edwen so” meaning they are on top of each other.
Check out more edwen si edwen so designs.
Unlike the “edwen si edwen so” kente where the designs are closely woven together with both the hand and the loom, the asante kente is made solely with the loom and thread. Thus it makes it easier to weave.
Take a look at some beautiful asante kente designs.
When you look at the asante kente designs, you will see that the designs are different than the “edwen si edwen so “.
One thing worth noting is that, both the asante and edwen designs are made with the same type of threads. The only difference us the style of weaving. Thus why their prices differ too.

Honestly, finding different beautiful purple African dress styles like these was way more difficult than we expected.
We searched high and low on the internet before we could get these decent-looking but gorgeous purple African dresses you are about to see.

In this blog post we are going to highlight the different modern African print dresses in the colour purple as well as let you know our thoughts on the styles plus reviews given by real people who purchased these purple African dress Styles from Popular African clothing stores online.
Beautiful Purple African Dress styles
Because African print fabrics are multicolored, no purple African dress is all purple. Some of these fabrics have two to three colours in them. One of the colors will be the dominant one and others will be there to add more vibrance to the dominant color.
If you are looking for a single coloured African print fabric in purple, we are sorry to tell you that it is absolutely impossible to get a fabric in the Color Purple only.
But be rest assured that we took the utmost care in finding you African dresses that have purple being the dominant colour of the fabric.
Take a look at the purple african dresses we chose for you. You will love them!

2. Purple African Dress Flare Style by Hagaar Baah
Although this dress is not completely purple it has undertones of purple that dominantly runs throughout the dress. Looking at the dress style, it is suitable as a church attire or as a casual outing attire.
What we love about this dress is the fancy sleeves of the dress. This sleeve style is currently trending and we think it is the perfect style to go with the design of the dress.
The dress also has pockets where you can stuff your hands in if you are the type who loves hiding their hands.
We firmly believe this dress will be a showstopper wherever you will wear it to.
3. Verwin Purple African Dress
Vermwin is a well known cheap african clothing brand on Amazon. The dress is a floor-length geometric mermaid maxi dress that has a flower that covers your belly if you are one who has a protruding belly.
The make of the fabric is a mixture of polyester and satin. The overall look of the fabric comes off as a cheeky African print fabric Style. Apart from the purple color this dress fabric style is in, you can order it in different colors. It is available in the colors red, blue, yellow etc.
For the fit of the dress, as stated earlier, it flatters all body sizes depending on the correct dress size you choose. You should however note that the material is not made from traditional african print fabric so don’t expect it to be of good african print quality.
One good thing about the material used in making this beautiful purple african dress is that it is stretchy therefore plus sized women can confidently wear it.
The stretch of the dress makes it outline your curves creating an illusion of luscious body curves. Because the dress has ruffles as part of the style, it does a good job of hiding big bellies.
Another thing to take note off when ordering this dress is your height. If you are on the short side you will have to alter the dress because it will definitely sweep the floor when you wear it. You can tell the seller to give you a dress that fits your height or better still, you can have it altered for you once you receive it.

4. Purple Dashiki Caftan Maxi Dress
For a simple chic look, this purple African dashiki dress is the most suitable dress style for the summer. Free and easy to wear, this dress is made from 100% polyester.
The dress has a drawstring closure in the middle of the dress which serves a purpose of cinching your waist and belly a bit to give a slender look to the body.
Apart from the dress having simple features, it has a comfortable feel to the skin when you wear it. It can double as a casual outing dress for summer or worn around the house for easy and free movement because of it being light in weight.
We wish this dress did not come with any trouble because everybody wants comfortability when they buy a dress. But truly speaking, this dress comes with a whole lot of trouble and alterations.
One of the top complaints of buyers who bought this dress is the ill stitchings in the dress. The sewing of the dress is absolutely imperfect and the threads are weak. This makes the threads fall out even before it reaches the customer.
If you are not lucky enough, you may have it delivered to you with tears in it. Other than that, you can easily fix the threads coming out with a good sewing machine to make it good to wear.
That said, you only need to buy this dress at your own risk.
Another stunning purple African dress that is a one size fits all is this African maxi dress by Sosa. The dress is a one size fits all type of african dress also known as the Bubu in Africa.
If you are a fan of baggy dresses, then this dress is the perfect African dress in purple for you. What makes this dress style stand out and very popular is the comfortability and light weightness of the style.
Most women in Africa who wear this style want their fashion comfort gence they resort to going for this style rather wearing tight fitting dresses which may hinder their movements.
On the neckline of the dress, features a beautiful flower embroidery that is made in different thread colours. The intricate designs of the dress gives it a unique appeal to the overall appearance and structure of this beautiful African boubou dress style.
The problem you may encounter when you buy this dress will be with your height and the size you choose. You should note clearly that this dress is designed to be a one-size-fits-all dress. So if you are smallish and you are ordering for this dress, make sure to let the seller know so they can adjust the size for you.
On the whole, this beautiful purple african dress is a good buy for your african fashion comfort. You can pair it with a headwrap and clad your feet with some fetching heels that matches with the dress.
6. The Grace Purple African print dress
A purple African dress like this Grace African skater dress is a must-have. This is a hundred percent cotton Ankara purple dress that is fully lined and has beautiful flower embroidery on the waist to add more style to the dress.
The other soft material you see as part of the design is an organza material. It has been used to create and design the simple off shoulder petal sleeve of the dress.

9. Purple African shift dress by Aika
Here we are again with another purple African dress by our favourite African clothing store, Aika. This is a shift dress that is easy to wear and definitely works for all body sizes.
If you are a lover of hiding your hands in your pockets, then this purple african dress is for you. At each side of the dress, are deep pockets where you can hide your hands and place your phones and other stuff in.
Puff sleeves are still in fashion and that is why this dress by Aika has one. The puffiness of the dress is achieved because of elastic threads that are sewn into the sleeve opening.
To make the sleeves more puffy, you can push the sleeves further up to get the classy 90s puff sleeve looks.
Another thing you can add to switch up the simple looks of the dress is by styling it with a belly belt and pair it with some sinful heels to achieve a stunning look with the dress.
Thinking of where to wear this dress to? This purple African dress is versatile so you definitely wear it anywhere you want. It all depends on your sense of styling.
A purple African dress like no other is what comes to mind whenever we see this dress by Veesfabdesigns. The dress is a high necked dress with long flared sleeves which is pretty obvious and we don’t need to tell you that.
The bottom part of the dress is designed in a gathered waist skirt style that is attached to the upper part of the dress to achieve a full body but cute african print dress.
To add a more unique style to the sleeve of the dress the flare part of the sleeves is a peplum style and it was not cut as same as the sleeve.
It was shaped separately, and then joined to the original sleeve of the dress.
The Vibrant and and deep colours of the African prints used in making this dress absolutely suits the style of the dress
Finding purple African dresses like the ones we have listed here is not as easy as we have made it look. In order to get one you need to call the internet before you can get perfect sounds like the ones we have shown you in this post.
