Best known of all Ghanaian and perhaps all African textiles

First developed in the 12th century, Kente is handwoven and native to the country of Ghana, in West Africa

It is the cloth is of the Asante (or Ashanti) tribe who consider it royal , even sacred, worn only in times of great importance.

Kente was the cloth of kings. Although its use became more widespread over the years it is still highly regarded and valued by all in Ghana and beyond.

This is a genuine hand-woven cloth, not the cheaper cotton machine-prints. Support Ghanaian local artisans by buying authentic kente cloth.
