Alex Boakye transforms the legendary allure of kente textiles into an original handbag. Historically, kente was reserved for special occasions, festive and or sacred. Now kente artistry stands as a symbol of prestige, cheerfulness and glamour. Woven with a cotton and rayon blend, the kente motifs on this tote are underscored by bright pink, which is symbolic of the female essence of life. According to Akan beliefs, pink is associated with tenderness, pleasantness and sweetness. The fully lined bag features an internal pocket with zipper, while the main bag fastens with a button and stands on stainless steel studs.
