Details

Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth becomes a colorful scarf. Madam Adwoa continues her mother's craft with this extraordinary design. Each strip of kente cloth requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Each color has its own meanings in Asante culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity. The patterns themselves are carefully chosen symbols, which a master weaver develops and names. This design is named Puduo, meaning "unity is strength" in the Akan language.

"Loved the Inspirational Name"

I purchased this as a gift for a very special, particular individual. She is a very sweet, caring individual who disdains extravagance and has dedicated her life to serve others. She absolutely loved it as a Christmas gift!

The Patience mask I ordered is quite lovely. Wonderful attention to detail and well-made. I am going to give it to my dad for his birthday. He is injured at the moment and could certainly use the reminder to be patient. Thank you
