A Matter of Protection in Africa

The Akan tribe, who live on the shores of Western Africa, have a system of symbols which they call Adinkra, one of which is called ‘Akoko Nan’. This symbolizes the proverb ‘A mother’s foot can step on her children but will never harm them’! This is an affectionate and protective symbol which advises raising children with love, but without spoiling them.

It is a matter of…

We don’t want to offend the elders in Africa, but in our land we have a saying ‘Roses flourish where a mother strikes us’. Another common saying is ‘Raw chicken would be eaten without question if it is your mother that requests it’. In short, we all need protection and affection from our mothers.

Numerological Towel...

A matter of Patchwork

Patchwork’s origins goes all the way back to th B.C. 100, and known to have its Anatolian roots from the Seljuk era. Called as Kırkyama, Yamalıbohça and Kırkpare, this handcraft is a recycling art which is emerged in order to reuse of leftover fabrics. The technique known as patchwork, is estimated to be distributed to West via the Silk Road and accepted as an art form in Europe and even managed to create its own industry there. Today, although it is a lost and forgotten handcraft, patchwork is now in our collection with this miniature example.

  • Special weaving and dye process
  • Easy to dry, globalisation with the power of symbols on the patchworks sent together.
  • You can use this towel at beach, bath, spa or hammam

A matter of Numerology: This towel weighs 376 grams. The surprising part is that once it absorbs water, its weight reaches to 835 grams. It has around 322 fringes which are 3.4 centimeters long. As if that’s not enough, it dries in only 610 seconds. If these have not gotten your attention then check this out: the numerological value related to this towel (calculated by adding the numbers until they become one figure) is 7.

7 is a symbol of unity, integrity and perfect order. 7 is blessed in every belief and civilization. 7 days, 7 planets, 7 wonders of world, 7 colors etc… In addition, this product is part of the collection at the 7th birthday of Mesele, and we believe this coincidence is truly meaningful.
