Kente Still Rules: African Fabric Jewellery Shall Never Go Out Of Style

""KENTE" is a brilliantly colorful fabric (cotton, rayon, sheen, etc.), entirely or solely hand-woven on a horizontal treadle loom by the Asantes in Ghana, Africa. The Asante Kente is woven in the outskirts of Kumasi, in the area of Bonwire, Sakora Wonoo, Ahodwo and Ntonso. It is also woven by the Ewes in the Volta, Ghana.

The Ewe and Asante Kente have similarities but different significance with respect to the weaving process. These colors and designs associated with Kente have solely made the fabric the best known of all Ghanaian and even all African textiles.

Each design or cloth has a story with a proverbial meaning with its own distinction."
