Details

Woven by hand, three strips of traditional West African kente cloth become a colorful scarf. Deborah Osei Boakye continues her grandfather'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 Ashanti culture, and the patterns themselves are carefully chosen symbols, which a master weaver develops and names. This design is named Nsatsia, meaning "fingers" in the Akan language. Its motifs suggest interlocking fingers from both hands.

This arrived this afternoon and it is gorgeous. Stunning would be the best word. This is perhaps the most beautiful piece I own. The colors are magnificent and the workmanship is that of a true artist. I will treasure this piece and will buy more in other colors. Thank you Deborah.
