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.
I am very pleased with the product I received, along with the booklet that came with it. Thank you so much for great customer service and following up with me after receiving everything.
I really love my kente stole! It was made with a great quality of material. It also made me stand out in the crowd. It let people know that I am proud to be black.
Arrived on time and looked great
I ordered two for my sons that graduated from college this Spring. I was very pleased with the quality and beauty of the product. My sons were very happy and received many compliments.
This was by one of the best stoles throughout graduation. There were only 4-5 others who had one of these and it was by far a crowd favorite. People from the continent of Africa even raved of both the look and the material and knew it was authentic with first glimpse. When I receive my masters I will definitely be ordering from here once again. Thank you once again.
I placed my order on Thursday evening, and received it the following Tuesday. I also received tracking updates throughout the process without asking for it. I even received an email advising me that my order was delivered. The quality of the item was precisely as described on the website. I’m proud to be wearing my Kente Stole at my graduation!
I love it!!! I took my graduation pictures on campus with it. I can’t wait to where it for commencement
The stoles are beautiful! I was so afraid to order online though due to my fear of not getting them in time or not getting what’s advertised. This turned out to be the perfect gift for my husband and I graduating this May. Shipping was fast and all items were included, as described in the description. Thanks!!!!#2018
Thank you so much! Item came as described. Love it!
Grrrreat stole. Quick shipping. Stole heightened my graduation pictures and made them look extra gorgeous.
The quality is beautiful, shipped the day I ordered it and came the very next day! If you’re going to get your kente stole, get it from them!
We received out stoles today, the craftsmanship is lovely with bright colors and patterns. Will definitely order again in the future.
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! The picture is me trying the sash on along with my cap and gown! University of Michigan-Ann Arbor Class of 2015!! Woot Woot
