Silver Spring, MD – January 11, 2022 – With ever increasing frequency, clothing has become an expression of a person’s identity. Their items of clothing and accessories are adorned with powerful symbols that give the wearer an opportunity to connect to the symbolic roots of the African continent. Such is the intention of the new line recently launched by Talia and Nasya.
What they have accomplished is a brilliant display of fashion integrated with artistic designs to represent their connection to authentic African culture and heritage. It is all about building a community where people can feel connected by displaying important African symbols rich with meaning that tells stories and teaches life lessons.
During a recent interview, a company spokesperson made these comments, “Our first Collection which we named the Adinkra collection features some of the beloved Adinkra symbols. These existing symbols have been reimagined and redesigned with vibrant colors and whimsical patterns. The goal of our clothing brand is to showcase African excellence through the modernization of African symbols to give consumers a fashionable experience.”
She goes on to say, “We see these symbols as the bedrock of our brand; hence over the lifespan of our company, we will explore all 54 countries on the continent to identify symbols with powerful meanings which can be modernized and amplified through our brand.”
Their new website is easy to navigate and is broken down into categories, such as:
- Adult Clothing: Hooded Sweatshirts, Crewneck Sweatshirts and T-Shirts.
- Kid’s Clothing: Infant, Toddler, Kids, and Youth.
- Accessories: Pillows, Coffee Mug, and Phone Case
About The History of Adinkra:
“The Adinkra symbols originate from the Gyaman people of Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire. Each symbol is rich with meaning that tells stories and teaches life lessons. In the Akan culture, the Asante peoples of Ghana use Adinkra to serve as a shorthand for communicating deep truths in visual form.
These African symbols possess an embellished function with various symbolic representations of ethics, morality, advice, concepts, and ideas. In the past, Adinkra symbols were reserved and could only be used by religious leaders and royals which they wore to important ceremonies; today the symbols have assumed global importance and are now found in logos, clothes, furniture, sculpture, and decorative items.”
The new line has received many accolades and a waiting list for some items.
