Adinkra dye

  1. 1. Production of Adinkra Dye
  2. 2. First, the bark and roots from the Badie and Kuntunkuni Tree (located in the Northern savanna), must be collected
  3. 3. The bark must be broken into smaller pieces to speed the softening processes
  4. 4. Smaller pieces
  5. 5. The roots are then soaked in oil for two days to soften
  6. 6. After is has been soaked, it is pounded until it becomes shredded mush. This can take a whole day.
  7. 7. The bark is then boiled in water until the brown color seeps out of bark. The solution will thickens as 2/3 of the water evaporates.
  8. 8. Look: How has the Adinkra process changed by “modern” technology?
  9. 9. Now, your turn! Use the stamps and combs to create some Adinkra Cloth.
