Kente Groove - On!

I love this patten rich traditional Kente design. 100% crisp cotton. Additional inside lining of neutral cotton giving this pillow a luxury decor fabric feel - superb quality. Wayward bird print on the back in 100% fresh cotton.

Or, below, in 18" x18" square, embellished with simple colourful hand stitched embroidery.  With grep wool mix back.

Kente prints are traditional patterns from Ghana; multicolored bright colors, geometric shapes and bold designs. Each colour has a meaning:

blue—peacefulness, harmony and love
maroon—the color of mother earth; associated with healing
red—political and spiritual moods; bloodshed; sacrificial rites and death.
white—purification, sanctification rites and festive occasions
yellow—preciousness, royalty, wealth, fertility
