"This fabric is a traditional Ghanaian design that you will often find used in garments of all types for both adults and kids. Every fabric has a story. Here's what the locals tell me about [this design]. The yellow fabric is sort of a Ghanaian "Law of Karma". It is usually sewn with the arrows pointing one way in the front and the other way in the back, meaning that whatever you do people will definitely come back to you. We must treat everyone equally, thus the symmetry of the design." —Karen Duca
