Duafe Hand Screen Printed Greeting Card Set | Set of 4
3rd Culture greeting cards are the product of our collaboration with Ottostop, and are hand screen printed in Fethiye, southern Turkey. The Duafe (‘wooden comb’) is the Adinkra symbol of beauty and femininity. Adinkra symbols originate in West Africa and have been used in African visual arts since the 12th century. The ‘evil eye’ integrated into the pattern is traditionally used in Turkish decorative arts to bring good luck and protection.
