Details

Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth is dazzling. Madam Adwoa continues with 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. Golden yellow is for royalty and blue is for togetherness. Purple is the color of femininity. The patterns themselves are carefully chosen symbols, which a master weaver develops and names. This design is named Obi Nkyere Akwadaa Nyame, meaning "Nobody points a child to God" in the Akan language.

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
