This is a wonderful Heirloom to pass along
This is a beautiful work of art. To wear it is inspiring. To see it up close is amazing. A wonderful gift and heirloom to be able to pass on to my Grandchildren of the rich culture and talent of Africa. May success and happiness follow this wonderful artist.

Cotton Kente Cloth Scarf, "Fishnet"
Woven by hand, this exceptional kente cloth scarf features colorful rectangles on a brown background. Alternating squares show a fishnet pattern giving the scarf its name – or "Net" in the Ewe language. By the Gobah Tengey-Seddoh Family, each strip requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. The patterns themselves are carefully chosen symbols, which a master weaver develops and names, often to honor people, historical events or proverbs.
Handwoven Cotton Blend Kente Cloth Shawl (17 inch width), "Fathia Beauty"
Ghana's Rachel Armah celebrates the African tradition of cloth, weaving this textile by hand on the traditional loom. Crafted of cotton and rayon blend fibers, it features four colorful strips of cloth that are sewn together, serving as an excellent shawl.
Ghanaian 4-Strip Kente Cloth Shawl in Turquoise and Yellow, "Artisan Hands"
Woven by hand, four 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 meaning "fingers" in the Akan language. Its motifs suggest interlocking fingers from both hands.
