AKUBA coffa medium KxK by Le Curine Collection
A timeless and ecological collection made by Korai x Kente in collaboration with Le Curine Collection.
Entirely handmade, the Korai x Kente by Le Curine Collection bags, called "coffe", reinterpret the simple baskets of the Sicilian rural tradition, with style and originality turning them into fine fashion accessories, embellished by bright and unusual colours and typical patterns of Ghanaian Kente clothes.
An all-female collection as well as the names chosen for each of them that, in accordance with a Ghanaian tradition tied to the new unborn, refer to the days of the week.
"AKUBA" in Twi language means "born on a Wednesday": it is an original bag with the traditional form of the Sicilian "coffa", medium size, and decorated with a multicoloured Kente cloth strip.
According to the Ghanaian symbolism, yellow represents beauty, wellness and preciousness; green means the forest and the vegetation, and means spiritual growth and renewal; black evokes Africa and the spiritual energy.
