GHANA NATIONAL CLOTH – KENTE 6/8 YARDS
Male 8 Yards(288 inch)/Female 6 Yards (216 inch)
“KENTE” is a brilliantly colorful fabric, entirely hand-woven by Ghanaian weavers. The brilliant colors and intricate designs associated with Kente have definitely made this fabric the best known of all Ghanaian, and perhaps even all West African textiles. Every design has a story with a proverbial meaning, giving each cloth its own distinction.
Uses Of Kente Kente cloth is usually worn for ceremonies and festivals, and other sacred occasions. It is also given as a gift for weddings, child naming ceremonies, graduations, and or other special events.
Women wear the cloth in 2 pieces – 1 piece about 2 yards long and 45 inches wide wrapped round the waist to form a floor-length skirt worn over a blouse specially sewn in plain material. The other Kente piece was either hung loosely over the arm or used as a shawl or stole.
Men wear the cloth in much the same way as the ‘Toga’ was worn by the ancient Greeks, and it would seem that these ancient people must have been in contact centuries ago
