A cloth designed with a leaf will surely indicate that the wearer is either a herbalist or a spiritualist. Leaves and therefore herbs are extensively used in religious rites and in medication. Some proverbs captured by the leaf in weaving include the following:
Amagba le gbe nuti ha nye ame na efe fometowo.
"A leaf on a shrub is also a member of the shrub family". There may be a common useless person in the street. He/she is is highly regarded by his/her family.
