meanings & history
remake of a KENTE (the tipical cloth of Asante people). Red + orange GLETSI by novi (secondary heddles). Red or yellow Adanu (brocade) "TSATEA" (fingers) "Fingers are human tools for practical expression of human thought. Smbol of practicality, dignity, of labour and creativity" (Kente is more than a cloth). Ewe weavers can also weave clohes with typical Asante patterns, but they rarely admit such pieces in their own collections. Anyway:"AFEVO can be sold in the market" (D. Massiasta).
