Kente Cloth is one of the highest quality handwoven textiles created in the world today. It can take weeks or months to weave one full piece, depending on the complexity of the pattern, and prices are set by weavers according to the time taken to weave.
Kente cloth is made from very fine threads of rayon, cotton, or in older pieces, silk. It is woven in strips on handmade looms by only the mostly highly skilled Ashanti weavers in the town of Bonwire, Ghana and also by Ewe peoples in the Agotime region.
In Ghana, Kente Cloth is worn by royalty and prominent members of society. In the West, Kente Cloth is commonly used for beautiful wall art hangings, framings, chair or table decorations and more.
