The pattern on these cotton blend socks is modelled after the dashiki, a traditional loose-fitting tunic garment originating in West Africa and popularised in the 1960s by African American liberation activists. The name for the design, Burkina, means ‘honest’ or ‘upright’ in the Mossi language spoken in Mali, Togo and Burkina Faso. The socks are designed in Ghana by Afrisocks, a company founded by Ghanaian entrepreneurs looking to celebrate traditional West African textile designs.
