Be a Woman Supreme

A Collaboration by Lalela Learners and Owanto


Introducing our new 100% Cashmere scarf! This is our first foray into 100% cashmere and we couldn't be more pleased with the way it turned out. For those of you who loved this scarf in cotton silk, just wait until you try this latest cashmere version!

This artwork was created during a special collaboration between the multi-cultural and multidisciplinary Gabonese artist, Owanto and Lalela's 8th grade Female empowerment class of 2017 at Silikamva High.

The artwork from this scarf came to life when Owanto showed the girls her neon piece, BE A WOMAN, and challenged them to write words that signify the ways they thought of themselves and values attributed to women as a whole.  The background of the scarf is meant to be green like a blackboard, alluding to the classroom, where these young women get the power and confidence to change their lives.

The artists names are Andisiwe, Athenkasi, Benelinah, Emihle, Gitta, Lilitha, Makomborero, Moesha, Okuhle, Siyanda, Tanaka, Wamanda, Yolanda, Nokwanda and Panashe.
