It took a lot of hard work and determination to get to where you are now and this genuine Kente Cloth Graduation Stole honors your achievement and helps you tell your story. You will look amazing in your graduation pictures and impress many when you walk across the stage wearing this rich and vibrant kente cloth.
The symbol on this stole is the "Sankofa Bird" which depicts a bird looking backwards while flying forward. The Sankofa Bird on this stole sits on the Golden Throne, which represents Royalty. 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.
This beautiful black graduation stole is completely handwoven and features vibrant red, gold and green accents. The whole weaving process can sometimes take a Master Kente Weaver up to 4 hours to complete.
Be sure that you are wearing genuine Handwoven Kente Cloth by buying directly from us. This Sankofa Edition™ Brand Kente Stole is made in Ghana and provides income to hundreds of skilled workers. Each package includes a Certificate of Authenticity and Sankofa Edition™ logo medallion sticker.
We have now been using Sankofa Edition for two years now for huge events. In both events we have honored two amazing contibutors to black communities and both were touched by the gift. That said, I think it would be amazing for Sankofa to consider kente designs outside of graduation for even in ceremonies to honor those who have done service to communities. Just a thought!
It was beautiful and my daughter truly loved it. Appreciated also was the handwritten note that came with the package which added a personalized touch. The explanation of the symbols on stole was fitting for the journey ahead of her as a graduate- Class of 2019. Ase.
I loved it and so did everyone around me
the students loved these at our Affinity Graduation
Love everything about my sash. From the shipping to packaging everything looked amazing especially the hand written note from the owner and the certificate of authenticity. Will highly recommend!!!
