The logo we use is an Adinkra symbol from Ghana.
It is the symbol of unity for one destiny. It depicts two crocodiles sharing one
stomach - they have to work together to survive.
The art of Adinkra is believed to originate in the Ivory Coast and the word
Adinkra actually means farewell or goodbye. It was originally a mourning cloth although now days it can be used for any occasion.
The Adinkra symbols symbolize non-verbal Communication as well as the way of life of the people who designed them.
The symbols are usually printed on cotton fabric to produce Adinkra cloths but are now also seen on buildings, pots and craft items.
When worn they tell about the wearer, be it for births, weddings, festivals or funerals.
Each symbol - there are many - has its Asante name and a literal English translation.
The original Adinkra cloths were only worn for special occasions as they were not designed to be washed.
