Details

Woven by hand, this exceptional kente cloth shawl features subtle motifs in marigold orange. The black and white stripes create a bold and beautiful contrast. 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. This design is named Fiawogorme, which means "after kings" in Ghana's Ewe language.
