Cotton kente cloth scarf, "Sky Ladder"$67.99
Once a craft reserved only for men, today designer Deborah Osei Boakye preserves her grandfather's legacy with this exquisite kente cloth scarf. It is woven on a traditional handcrafted loom, with a rich cotton blend in shades of bright yellow and cool blue. According to Ashanti tradition, it is the weaver who names each piece, and this one is called the Akan word for "ladder."
Authentic Handwoven Green Cotton Kente Cloth Scarf, "Green Pebbles"$37.99
The intricate texture in this handsome kente cloth scarf is inspired by beach pebbles. Designed by a fisherman around 1898, its name means "pebbles of the shore are hard to crack." The tiny blocks of pattern represent the thoughts of that ancestral craftsman. Handcrafted by the Gobah Tengey-Seddoh Family, this extraordinary double weave textile is one of the most difficult patterns to achieve. These expert weavers use traditional looms.
Each strip requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Strips are generally three to four inches wide and seven to ten feet long, and the length of time it takes to complete one strip varies by the complexity of the chosen pattern. The simplest use mostly vertical, or warp patterns, and an experienced weaver can make several of those in one day. But patterns with nearly all weft (horizontal thread) patterns, where the warp design is hardly visible, can take up to four days to complete an individual strip. Each color has its own meanings in Asante culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging, and spirituality, while white is purity. The patterns themselves are carefully chosen symbols, which a master weaver develops and names, often to honor people, historical events, or proverbs.
