Join us on a journey of discovery as we uncover their meanings and what they represent.
▲Pillows of a Wealthy Woman is a symbol that represents women who do not have to work. The pillow is for laying their head as they live a life of leisure. This symbol means wealth and luxury. As time passed, it evolved to represent a confident attitude that exudes ease and poise. It was believed that those who possessed this symbol carried themselves with grace and ease, much like the wealthy women who had first embraced it.
▲Another symbol that held great importance is the Bed of Bamboo and Millet leaves. It is a symbol of high status and luxury, worn by women who wish to convey they are more superior than their co-wife. While the pattern is popular, not all women who wear it do so with the intention of representing her marital status.
▲A small drum that calls warriors into battle. It’s also used for frightening animals when hunting.
▲More than just a pattern of three lines, Malian culture views the spindle as a sacred symbol, imbued with both practical and spiritual importance. The symbol represents the process of transformation, taking raw materials and weaving them into something valuable and beautiful. It embodies the essence of wealth and prosperity, an emblem of the rich history and culture.
Symbols on the Wrap Life's bucket hats continue to tell the story of creativity, strength, and unique perspective. Each time you choose to wear our bucket hats bearing these symbols, you carry a small piece of history and culture with you, adding to the richness of your own story.
