Details

Combining shades of pale gray and black, Gobah Tengey-Seddoh creates an outstanding example of kente cloth art. Gray derives its symbolism from ash, used for healing and cleansing rituals. Black represents physical aging and the spiritual maturity it brings. 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.

"Beautiful workmanship"

I received the scarf today and I am so glad. It is a beautiful scarf that I am going to gift with the Kente backpack that I ordered before. I am sure this will be a special gift for the person I am giving it to. It is beautifully done with gold keys and stripes.
