One of a kind African Bohemian maxi skirt handmade from high quality printed Kente Fabric. The picture says it all… Feminine and full… I have used several yards of fabric to create some drama. With 8 wide panels, this skirt really makes a statement whilst being still very light in weight.

Made with love .¸¸.•*¨`* ✩

Ghanaian-Japanese Chilean Wedding

From the Bride: Since I come from two different backgrounds, I asked my dad to wear the traditional Ghanaian kente cloth and my mother an Irotomesode kimono. My dad’s friend in Ghana had my kente made for me, I just loved the vibrant colours and the significance of the meaning of the various colours where blue denotes- peace, harmony, love; yellow- preciousness, wealth, fertility; maroon- healing and green- spiritual growth and renewal.  
Since Boris is Chilean we decided to have the Chilean Mil-hoja cake (thousand layers cake) made of pastry layered with caramel, custard, sponge and strawberry cream to give a little Latino flavour. The cake is so yummy, we decided to give it as a bonbonniere for our guests. read more

…and i suppose, the real reason i am writing this is to go deeper into acculturation and what it means to be renewed in the light of why we are who we are… #kente
