Jane Mbilla selects a colorful kente cloth print for this face mask. The pattern is known as Edwene asa, which means 'all motifs are used up' in the Akan language. Each color has its own meaning in Asante culture. Green is fertility and new harvest, gold is royalty, black is strength, aging and spirituality, and white is purity. Lined in white, the cotton mask is double-layered, washable and reusable, with elastic to loop over the ears.
Placement of the motifs can vary but the fabric will be the same.
