If you love colorful African textiles, then look for Kente. Kente is a hand-woven Ghanaian textile made from cotton strips one of which is our Pure Cotton African Kente. As a traditional cloth, Kente is for occasional use by royals and the well-to-do. Kente originated from Bonwire in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Bonwire and its neighboring towns and villages continue to be the hub of weaving or the manufacture of Kente.

The use of Kente cloth has become widespread for most occasions. Due to the popularity of Kente cloth, and the innovative spirit among the producers of the cloth, different patterns keep emerging all the time. This often makes it difficult to select from among the different colors and designs. Kente fabric can be worn as a wrapping cloth by men. It is used to make kaba and slit for women. It is also used to make dress for women, shirt for men, artifacts, and academic stoles used at graduation ceremonies. Today, Kente is not produced in Ghana, but also in Togo, and Ivory Coast.

Here are a few Kente colors and their meanings: black means spiritual strength, maturity, mourning and funeral rites; red is blood, death, political passion, strength; blue stands for peace, love, unity, and harmony; gold or yellow: wealth, royalty; green growth, harvest, renewal; white is purity, cleansing rites, festive occasions; purple or maroon are Mother Earth, healing, protection from evil; Silver denotes Peace and joy; referencing to the moon; get your order to you sooner that you would expect.
