Details

"I was inspired by the fans that the Royal Family and other dignitaries use, which I saw on exhibit when I visited the Ashanti King’s Manyea Palace, in Kumasi," confides Robert Aidoo-Taylor. To craft this extraordinary fan, he covers a vinyl board with cotton printed with black and brown waves. Aidoo-Taylor decorates the wood handle with rattan and polyester cords. Where the fan and handle meet, Aidoo-Taylor crafts a traditional Ashanti mask representative of the tribe's physical traits.

10 Testimonials for Robert Aidoo-Taylor

Sharon

We really like the ""Perfect Peace"" bracelet in green and black but the first time my husband wore it the black threads came out from under the green braiding and it is basically broken/not wearable. We will have to return it. Hope you can ensure this doesn't happen with your bracelets in the future and wishing you success.

I received your beautiful fan today and it is even more beautiful in person. It is very well made and I will display it nicely.

Joe

Received two woven bracelets today. Well crafted for the price but one of the bands was not as advertised . . . 8.5 inches instead of 8.75 inches.
