Behind The Scenes
The print of this fabric is called “Abankaba” from the Twi language in Ghana meaning “government” the rings on the dress are based on the handcuffs the police use to arrest people, This is typical of West African Ankara print fabrics to draw inspiration from everyday mundane objects, we think it’s genius!
Behind The Scenes 2
Nearly 400 years ago Kente fabric or cloth was originally weaved & produce exclusively for the Kings of the Ashanti tribe in Ghana. As time passed the kings allowed the everyday man and woman to also wear Kente. And with the development of technology, the Kente design was printed on the fabric instead of weaved, becoming available to the masses.
