*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.
“Fawohodie” is the local name for the symbol printed in this cloth, and is a symbol of independence, emancipation and freedom.
