Cotton blend kente scarf, 'Akan Gold Dust' (5 inch width) (Ghana)


Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth becomes a colorful scarf. Rachel Armah presents a traditional design known as Sika Futuro in the Akan language. Sika means gold and futuro means dust, and the motif symbolizes wealth, royalty, elegance, spiritual purity and honorable achievement. Each strip of kente cloth requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Each color has its own meanings in Ashanti culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity.
