This cape is made from bogolan prints fabric. Bogolan comes from the Bamanan weavers of Mali (West Africa). The term is made up of two words: "Bogo" meaning "earth, clay" and "lan" meaning "made with". It refers both to a women's loincloth and to the ancestral dyeing technique used to create it.

The cape is named after Dikalo. Dikalo means message in Duala/Sawa language from Cameroon. In various African culture (Sawa, Grassphields...) when a message needs to be shared to the community, a messenger walks in the streets, with a bell that he rings.
Here Dikalo refers to the message brought to us by the Ngaame (spider) in various Cameroonian cultures (Mambila, Bafia, Ewondo, Bamoun). For more information, kindly check this website:
