“Nsaa”. Nsaa is a high quality handwoven local cloth used as a blanket, and traded in by northern Ghanaians. It is mostly purchased by traditional rulers and the wealthy, and an indication of its quality and durability. The symbol has come to represent excellent quality workmanship.
*Adinkra are visual symbols from the Akan tribes of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa. They represent concepts, original thoughts, and popular proverbs in easily memorable form. They’re also a record of historical events and express traditional attitudes.
