Ce dessin mythique Vlisco est toujours très apprécié des togolais mais également des Ibos dans leurs couleurs phares, rouge et jaune. Dans le livre 'Les messagers du pagne', l'auteure définit ce dessin comme étant un concert d'étoiles qui brillent et qui vibrent. C'est un signe de fête, de réussite et d'allégresse.
Au Bénin, on l'appelle "Hêfounmè wè hè non soudé" signifiant en français L'oiseau grandit dans son duvet.
