Details

Forever inspired by the vibrant colors adorned during traditional celebrations and festivities, artisan Rachel Armah uses lively shades of indigo, maize, and crimson to create this stunning kente scarf. The Ghanaian artisan uses a traditional loom to create the rich cotton blend kente fabric, typical to the Akan ethnic group of West Ghana. The scarf is called obaapa, meaning "virtuous woman" in the Ghanaian Akan language.

"Stones are beautiful!"

I love these stones, but I have to confess that they are heavier than I can comfortably wear. Im so sad about that. Ive been thinking of putting them on a gold chain as a necklace because the stones are so very pretty.

I love the combination of colors and shapes. I have lots of earrings but none like these which get many compliments for their uniqueness. The craftsmanship is excellent.

"Lovely Earrings"

These earrings can be seen when you wear them. The pink cats eye beads are beautiful . The picture doesnt really do them justice. These earrings are different than any others I have. If you want some pretty earrings that are unique then these are for you!

"Beautiful....and Memorable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift for my wife, who some years earlier had spent a year in Ghana. She always spoke fondly of her experiences there, meeting people and getting to know the culture. My hope was that this gift would help revive those memories at Christmastime. Success! She loves it, and so do I! Thank you, Rachel!
