A wax printing company in African cloths, based in Ghana, has created a new design line with the highlighted virus design and other symbols of the pandemic such as padlocks and airplanes. They say it’s to give a “positive touch to a negative phenomenon”.
The new cloths from the textile company Ghana Textiles Printing (GTP) impress because they have a globally recognizable motif: the design of the Covid-19 virus, printed in various colors and shapes and interlaced with padlocks, keys and airplanes. “We gave a positive touch to a negative phenomenon,” explained Stephen Badu, a GTP spokesman for the BBC.
“We are in a business where stories are told. And we tell our stories through our drawings ”, underlines Badu. “We know that this pandemic will leave a mark in the history of the world and it is important that future generations know that this phenomenon has happened in time”.
