sneak peak

Probably the hottest new thing on the market, contributing to a good cause aka Ghana!

COMING SOON: reversible totes

A dear lady gave Kente cloth from Ghana to Grandma, who kindly passed it on to me. Mom and I are making them into reversible totes with added fabrics (Well, Mom is doing all the labor). Overall, this whole situation is pretty cool. Each bag is ‘one of a kind’.

I just figured out what each color of the Kente cloth means…. so neat!

  • black—maturation, intensified spiritual energy
  • blue—peacefulness, harmony and love
  • green—vegetation, planting, harvesting, growth, spiritual renewal
  • gold—royalty, wealth, high status, glory, spiritual purity
  • grey—healing and cleansing rituals; associated with ash
  • maroon—the color of mother earth; associated with healing
  • pink—assoc. with the female essence of life; a mild, gentle aspect of red
  • purple—assoc. with feminine aspects of life; usually worn by women
  • red—political and spiritual moods; bloodshed; sacrificial rites and death.
  • silver—serenity, purity, joy; assoc. with the moon
  • white—purification, sanctification rites and festive occasions
  • yellow—preciousness, royalty, wealth, fertility
