Now let’s talk about the beadwork, the Bini traditional attire is never complete without the beads. The Edo Bridal attire is synonymous with beads, beads and more beads!
Eto-Okuku ( Beaded Crown) This is a hairstyle perculiar to Edo Brides, where coral beads are sewn into the hair to form a crown. These days there are ready made Eto Okukus in the form of wigs already styled with coral beads.
