Kuosi Jade Napkin Set
Our colourful ‘Kuosi’ collection is inspired by patterns found on ceremonial elephant masks belonging to members of the Kuosi society, a prestigious society in Cameroon. The elephant signifies power, authority, and leadership. Whilst the intricate beadwork signals wealth and prosperity.
We translated these patterns onto our very own textiles with our classic batik method. The collection comes in an array of joyful colours from ocean blue to citrus yellow.
