Deficiencies and Decline of Daboya Local Dyeing Industry in Ghana


The deficiencies facing the local dyeing industry reflect significantly on productivity and the causes are multi-faceted, but the key ones include poor material quality as a consequence of bad smell and lack of wash fastness and sustainability of new fabrics. Daboya local dyeing industry, a cultural identity and a means of livelihood for the majority of the indigenes in North Gonja District, in the northern region of Ghana was therefore investigated with the prime objective to identify the dwindling fortunes, challenges and the deficiencies facing the industry. Relevant data for the study were collected through field research, questionnaire administration, individual and group interviews, and secondary sources.
