Ewa (Beauty in Yoruba)
Naibu (Inside in Japanese)
The peacock symbolizes the beautiful things of life. It radiates an aura of glory, freedom, dignity, eternal life, love, beauty, strength, courage and aesthetics. In West Africa, the Peacock symbolism is here to remind us that nothing, including beauty, should be taken too seriously. The Peacock meaning reminds you to stay centered on what “is” and allow you to be grateful for what you have.
The meaning behind this is that the true beauty insides speak louder and impact one another in a positive way, no matter how good an appearance a person is.
Water in Japan is believed to incarnate the purity and pliant simplicity of life.
RECORD or WATER WELL
also known as
Target / Nsu Bura
This drawing first appeared on the market in the 1960s and goes by many names, such as “Plaque-Plaque”, “Target”, and “Nsu Bura”, which means ‘water well’ in Ghana. When you throw a stone in a water well, you can see a ripple effect. The message is that whatever you do, good or bad, it will have an effect on everyone around you. In Nigeria, the design is known as Record, thanks to the circular shape of the motif, which reminds many consumers and traders of old vinyl records.
Also known as
Fleurs De Mariage / Mgbolodi
This popular fabric is known by names such as “Rolls Royce”, “Mgbolodi” and “Fleurs de Mariage” (Wedding Flowers). It symbolizes the beauty of happiness in a marriage. It is also believed that when owned or worn, the design will bring uncountable success and wealth to the owner and their family. Perhaps the fabric owes its name “Rolls Royce” to this superstition.
