Woven by hand, traditional West African kente cloth becomes a colorful scarf. Rachel Armah presents a traditional design known asEdwene asa. The phrase means “all motifs are used up” in the Akan language. 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 Asante culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity.
