Kente of Gees Bandana
This stunning textile was “inspired by patterns and weavings from traditional Ghanaian kente cloth as well as colors and shapes of quilts from Gee’s Bend, Alabama.”
Created by Washington based artists, Ama, these handmade designs utilize personal illustrations, graphics, patterns and symbols from Africa, Asia and Europe to “create products that are visual metaphors for [her] African American history and present experience.”
According to Ama, “This series of bandana designs uses Adinkra symbols, colors and patterns from Ghanian textiles and Haitian art, Dutch wax print fabrics, and traditional Asian and North American bandana lay-outs. Together they create a cohesive collection that speaks to adaptation, representation, and cultural evolution.”
