TUKWI(Botswana-Setswana language)/Turbans/headwraps have been worn throughout countless cultures. Sikhs wear these wrapped-up headpieces for religious reasons and it’s believed Arabs historically wore them to shield themselves from the desert sand and sunlight.Its uses or meaning can vary depending on the country and/or religion.
The turban is our Guru's gift to us. It is how we crown ourselves as the Singhs and Kaurs who sit on the throne of commitment to our own higher consciousness. For men and women alike, this projective identity conveys royalty, grace, and uniqueness. It is a signal to others that we live in the image of Infinity and are dedicated to serving all. The turban doesn't represent anything except complete commitment. When you choose to stand out by tying your turban, you stand fearlessly as one single person standing out from six billion people. It is a most outstanding act.SO SAYS THE SIKHS.
For US, africans, It is a connection between past and present, and between the Africans that came to the Americas as slaves and those who remained in Africa. It is a historical fashion accessory that spans from pre-slavery Africa to the wardrobes of Black women all over the world in the present day.
In Ghana opportunity to wear a duku usually falls on a religious day of Friday , Saturday or Sunday, depending on if they are Muslim, Seventh-Day Adventists or Sunday church-going Christians.
In Botswana Tukwi is worn to show respect(black) at funerals and worn in any colour for weddings.
ohkay..back to fashion..
If you have not mastered the art of tying a turban/headwrap yourself (fromscarves and/or scrap material), June’s turban line is a great alternative as they have been creatively constructed by the “Queen of Turbans” herself.
