Embroideries are usually sewn designs on a garment and in this context, the Agbada garment it is. Embroideries have a way of beautifying outfits, not just that but also giving them a sense of stylish fitting. Take a look at the Agbada clothing in general, you are sure to see a design in the front. Without this design, the Agbada is just but a plain flowing garment.

Agbada embroideries could actually be seen from the context of it passing a fashion statement. Take for instance, you get the same car with a friend but you get to pimp your wheels as well as re- spray, even though you got yours cheaper, your very own car would be the center of attraction and that is the same with having to embroider your Agbada garment with a design.
