Printed exclusively for Suitsurmesur in the historical heart of British silk industry, Macclesfield. The Sankofa Bird Pocket Square combines our love for African bird species with our passion for custom classic menswear. Meticulously hand selected historical prints chosen for their beauty as art as well as for their compatibility as an accessory. We pay attention to how the pocket square can be worn; depending on the fold, different looks are possible showing only certain colours, making it very versatile pocket square. This pocket square is available in a variety of vibrant colours.

SIGNIFICANCE

The Sankofa bird is a sacred Adinkra symbol of the Akan people of Ghana. It shows the Sankofa bird looking behind as she places an egg on her back. The meaning of the symbol is “To look back and remember”. For if you don’t know where you’ve come from, you won’t know where you are going. We must all look back and remember where we came from and pass on the knowledge we have acquired to the next generation.
