Collection: The Sankofa Collection- And just like that. You will know where you have to go because of where you have been.

The Sankofa represented by either a stylized heart or a bird looking back holding a precious egg,  is one of many Adinkras used by the Akan, particularly the Ashanti, in Ghana. Many of the Adinkra symbols have meanings linked to proverbs, such as the Sankofa symbol. Sankofa, in the Twi language, translates into English as ” reach back and get it” (san – to return; ko – to go; fa – to look, to seek and take). It is often associated with the proverb, “Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi,” which translates into “It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.”

I hope this collection of designs will inspire you to unlock the many doors of your past, to examine your essential parts and to move forward wisely into your future.

Style tells a story. That story can be history- LinaEffie
