Wooden Comb (Duafe)

Our wood necklaces are a are such a perfect gift for a friend, coworker, family or just for yourself. They compliment any outfit and are super lightweight and comfortable. This wood medallion is shaped like a duafe or wooden comb with  wood beads. The meaning of this symbol is characterized slightly differently in "The Adinkra Dictionary" and "The Values of Adinkra Symbols"; the former emphasizes more abstract qualities of feminine goodness, love and care, while the latter has a more literal interpretation, looking one's best and good hygiene. In any case, the duafe was a prized possession of the Akan woman, used to comb and plait her hair. All of our adult sized wood necklaces are approximately 4x4 inches and youth necklaces are approximately 2x2 (when available). The actual measurements of the pendant is based on the shape and it may vary from those above.
