Two Strips Handwoven Green and Red African Kente Scarf, "Akan Blessing"
Black complements red and green in a colorful scarf by Rachel Armah. Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth depicts a design known as Nhyira. The phrase means "blessing" in the Akan language.
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.
