Yemba Green - Silk Square
If it is a powerful, rich and lesser-known African fabric, the Ndop is the royal fabric and of the secret societies of the Bamileke of Cameroon. In its original form, it is an assembly of vertical cotton bands, indigo blue, whose white geometric patterns, transcribe various messages; blue being a symbol of the supernatural and of spirit powers. This ritual garment of secret societies, ceremonial attire of kings and notables, grave clothes enveloping the bodies of the latter, wearing the Ndop is not trivial.
Our silk scarf "Yemba", a major Bamileke language, is therefore a reinterpretation of this fabric to which, however, respecting the codes that make it a unique fabric.
