Details

Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth becomes a colorful scarf. Rachel Armah presents a traditional design known as Edwene Si Edwene So. The phrase means "double wisdom as special as gold" 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.

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.

"Beautiful"

These are substantial and beautiful. The photos cannot show how the light hits the soapstone and turns them from green to yellow to gold to brown to blue...I always get complements on them with my short dark hair!
