Madam Adwoa shares her mother's teachings with the extraordinary design of this kente cloth. The cotton blend fabric is woven on a traditional loom in blue, red, yellow, black, white, and green. Each strip of kente cloth requires considerable effort, and the looms are worked with both hands and feet. Madam Adwoa calls her design 'Makomaso Adeae,' which in Akan means 'My Heart's Desire.'

Meaning 'basket', kente features interwoven strips of cloth, and was once reserved for the sole use of kings. It is a textile tradition of the Akan people, who convey meaning and symbolism to each kente cloth. Green is associated with fertility and new harvest, yellow with royalty, and black with strength, aging and spirituality. White is associated with purity, red with politics and spirituality, and blue is used in a variety of ways to symbolize spiritual sanctity, fortune, peacefulness and love.
