How to make the perfect tiktuks
Tiktuck are the most iconic of all the traditional Somali craft and have become synonymous with the city of Mogadishu.
These intricate woven fabrics have become a fashion statement for a generation of young Somali women who have adopted them as their signature pieces.
They are also popular among locals who are obsessed with them.
Today, the city’s famous tiktiks have grown even more popular in the country, and many tourists flock to the city for their unique look.
The trend has been going on for decades, but it’s only recently that it has caught the attention of fashion designers.
Here are some tips to help you decide on the right tiktoks for your wardrobe.1.
Choose a quality tiktub.
The best tikts can cost up to £1,500, but if you’re going to spend more, look for a quality one that’s made of 100% cotton, polyester or linen.
These fabrics have a higher weight-to-weight ratio, meaning the fabric won’t stretch.
Choose one with an adjustable strap.
The tik-tuks have adjustable straps so you can adjust the height of the fabric so that it doesn’t get in the way of your handbag or backpack.
You can even put a strap on the back of the tiktop for added stability.3.
Choose an option that’s not too stretchy.
The most popular options are polyester and linen.
They’ll stretch down to the smallest point, but they’re not as stretchy as cotton.
You want the fabric to have a soft feel, so make sure it’s not going to be too tight or too loose.
Make sure it fits.
The perfect tic-toe tiktk is going to have the perfect size, and the best tis should fit you perfectly.
If you don’t have a tik, you can make your own by using the same fabric, but making sure the edges of the cloth are flat and straight.5.
Make your tik to look good.
Choose fabrics that are both soft and smooth.
If possible, wear them to a public event, such as a wedding or charity event.
If the tis are too soft or too stiff, try adding a fabric that’s a bit more stretchy, such a cotton or polyester blend.
Choose the right size.
The bigger the fabric, the more you can stretch it.
It can take up to 10cm (3 inches) to make a tic tikk, so it’s a good idea to measure your tis to see how much you need.
The darker colours tend to make tiktops look more vibrant, and lighter colours look less so.
It’s a great idea to experiment with different colours and colours combinations to get the look that suits you best.8.
Check the fit.
The right fit will give you the perfect fit, and if the fabric is too big or too tight, you’ll need to change the length of the straps to make it fit.9.
Add a little extra fabric.
Add extra fabric if the tic is too loose or if it’s too tight.
It doesn’t matter if you add too much fabric, as long as you don.10.
Look for a local tailor.
If your tic tok is made in a different city, you may be able to find one in the nearby town where you’re staying.
You’ll also find some tik tik shops that specialize in traditional Somali cloths, so be sure to check their website to find the best place to buy a tix.
