Details

A colourful cotton print depicts Ghana's traditional Edwene Asa kente design. The phrase means "all motifs are used up" in the Akan language, indicating the number of different patterns combined in this one. Each colour in kente cloth 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.

Justina Botwey uses the fabric to craft a pair of beautiful contoured face masks. Lined in solid white, both are double-layered, washable and reusable, with elastic loops to slip over the ears. "To me, the combination of colours in this kente design indicates that, despite our differences, we are still one people," the artisan affirms.

The position of individual prints and colours will vary but the fabric will remain the same.

"face masks"

These are lovely and well made. I found them somewhat small so they would be better for someone with a smaller face than mine--I am a large person.

"Love the pattern; quality, not so much."

Ear straps not adjustable and one strap broke the second time I wore it. :(
