Proverb: Patience & Tolerance
With the enormous capacity to love, the Akoma is a symbol that is synonymous with patient and tolerance. Often used as a tool to settle matters in the Ghanaian community, the heart is the core of every being. A well known saying ‘Ka wa kuma to wu yem’ (calm your racing heart down), highlights the importance of the Akoma, not only as a symbol of peace, but also of courage and endurance.
This beautiful handmade piece has been crafted using fine bone china.

It’s lovely and light to hold and transcends real luxury. Please note that our mugs are dishwasher safe. Our gold banded mugs however are not microwavable.
