kente fabric, handwoven cloth from Ghana, an authentic ethnic fabric simple yet beautiful. Will make great gift for someone special. It’s a modern and less complicated version of the famous traditional cloth.
Women in Ghana make them into stylish outfits for festive occasions such as traditional weddings (some use it for their church weddings too), and many other important social gatherings. They work equally well in other items of clothing such as skirts and jackets

Best known of all Ghanaian and perhaps all African textiles
First developed in the 12th century, it 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.
