I blogged back on June 7, 2013 about this kente cloth that I have. Well my HalleluYah kente cloth bag is finished!!! I am so happy. It turned out just as I described it to my family member who is a talented seamstress on how I wanted it to look. It’s not kente cloth from Ghana but it is 100% cotton and the blue jean fabric of course is 100% cotton. I chose jean fabric to make the bag more durable and last for years to come.
Outside the bag with a kente pocket.
The inside of the bag. She surprised me with pockets inside too.
Do you know that artisans are called by Yah? Moses said to the children of Ysrayl, see Yah has called by name Bezalyl the son of Uriyah the son of Hur of the tribe of Yahudah. And He has filled him with the Spirit of Yah in wisdom and understanding in knowledge and all manner of workmanship to design artistic works to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting jewels and setting in carving wood and to work in all manner of artistic workmanship. And He has put in his heart the ability to teach in him and Aholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan. He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work of the engraver and the designer and the tapestry maker in blue, purple and scarlet thread and fine linen and of the weaver—those who do every work and those who design artistic works. Exodus 35:30-35.
All the women who were gifted artisans spun yarn with their hands and brought what they had spun of blue, purple and scarlet and fine linen. And all the women whose hearts stirred with wisdom spun yarn of goat’s hair. Exodus 35:25-26.
