Tee Batik: Nkruma Pencil
As part of #The100dayproject this year, I turned my fascination with Indonisian batiks and Dutch wax fabrics into a theme for daily inspiration.
The Nkruma Pencil was named after Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah, known for making strong comments and speeches. His pencil, used to write speeches, sign deportation orders as a method of control was considered sharp, mightier than the sword and a weapon to his political opponents.
