Adinkra is a printed fabric - hand-made and worn mainly for funerals, which are very important celebrations in Ghana.
According to Kojo Fosu:
The Adinkra fabric is carefully printed in graphic symbols of geometric motifs, on a background of white, rust-brown, or black vegetable-dye fabric. Any one of the motifs, or any combination of them, could be arranged in narrative patterns to convey specific messages.
These messages may be expressed as a reflection on issues pertaining to beauty, morality or other higher values.
