Today’s post is all about Sika Wo Ntaban. I love this cloth even though I don’t own it. On my next trip to Ghana, I must purchase it in various colors. It has this old vintage look that I adore. Below is the meaning of this beautiful cloth via Style Me Ankara. They share the meaning behind many of today’s beautiful and popular African cloths here.
Sika Wo Ntaban means ‘Money has Wings.’ This fabric encourages people to make good financial investments. If one is not careful with money it will fly away like a bird.This fabric is also an original design from Vlisco. –Via Style Me Ankara
I love the financial advice given in this cloth. Word to the wise.

Check out last week’s post Cloth Meaning: Nsu Bra here.
Just a side note, these names ( i.e., Nsu Bra, Angelina and Siko Wo Ntaban) are the common cloth names used in Ghana. It’s helpful to know these names when cloth shopping in Ghana (i.e. market shopping and such). However, I noticed that when I googled “Sika Wo Antaban” as opposed to googling “African cloth with bird on it”, I got more search results for the latter. That just goes to show that the name is common in Ghana and among Ghanaians only. Just a FYI.
Thank you for reading! Have a very blessed week and a Merry Christmas 🙂
