As you may know we are crazy about Adinkra symbols…  Hummm – What’s an adinkra symbol??

Adinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Akan, that represent concepts or aphorisms. Adinkra are used extensively in fabrics, pottery, logos and advertising. They are incorporated into walls and other architectural features. Fabric adinkra are often made by woodcut sign writing as well as screen printing.Adinkra symbols appear on some traditional akan gold weights. The symbols are also carved on stools for domestic and ritual use..

Needless to say,  they spoke to us in more ways than one. As we started to look closer and closer they actually started to reveal hidden (graphic) messages that were screaming to be brought to life…
