Our bucket hats honour the Ghanaian Tradition of Day Names. In Ghana, children are given a ‘day name’, which corresponds to the day of the week when they were born. A child named Kwaku is born on a Wednesday.
All our hats are limited edition.
Ahwenepa Nkasa x FLO London
FLO London The Shop’s 2021 collection (#FLTS21) is dedicated to the Ahwenepa Nkasa fabric.
Fabrics in Ghana have proverbial meanings. The fabric that we have used for this first collection is named Ahwenepa Nkasa, which means ‘good waist beads do not make noise’. This is a common proverb among Ghanaians which implies you should let your deeds or character speak for you.
Handmade in Ghana.
Machine washable in low temperatures, but can also be hand-washed in cold water.
Items are handmade, therefore slight variations are expected making each one of a kind and unique.
