It features Aztec inspired prints and geometrical shapes on a black background.  I’ve noticed visual similarities between Aztec, Egyptian, Ganado prints associated Navajo Native American art and Adinkra symbols from Ghana West Africa.

Here are some Adinkra images from the website

Its great to know that many of the images that we see on fabric has a story or a meaning behind it.

Here is a  Ganado Navajo inspired rug woven by Gilbert Begay.  Notice the geometrical repeats which bear similarities to Adinkra symbols.

Of course my inquisitive nature has lead me on a search to find the meaning behind these symbols and locate a link between the visual similarities. I am super excited about what I may find. These discoveries will be revealed in upcoming blogs!!

When my mentor and amazing friend Bonnie saw these leggings, she loved them and insisted that I make more. Hence, I’ve dubbed these the Bonnie Leggings!! I am going to make a series of these leggings in various tribal prints. The next blogs will feature available prints. For now you can click the link below to order!
