Sankofa is a Ghanaian word which means "it is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” The word is a combination of the words: san (return), ko (go), fa (seek and take).
“Sankofa” teaches us to go back to our roots in order to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of our past so that we can achieve our full potential to move forward.
Whatever we have lost, forgotten, forgone, or been stripped of can be reclaimed, revived, preserved, and perpetuated. Visually and symbolically, “Sankofa” is expressed as a bird that flies forward while looking backward with an egg (symbolizing the future) in its mouth.
Sankofa Edition™ is an expression of this mantra and provides a way for everyone to express their affinity for African culture.
This is absolutely perfect. Perfect! The stitching looks very nice. Very authentic. Very well made. It is also the perfect length. I tried it on as soon as it arrived!
Absolutely beautiful. It arrived early - just in time for a Prayer Breakfast. It came with a certificate of authenticity and a daily prayer booklet.
PERFECT.... I love the white stitching in it because it has like a sparkly look to it and it's the right royal blue color.. I am very pleased and I cannot wait to wear it proudly when I graduate with my Master’s degree next month!!!!!!
