BACKGROUND INFORMATION

 

We support local experts 

The method of producing Kente, called strip weaving, has existed in West Africa since the 11th century. In 1697, the King of the Ashanti Kingdom, Osei Tutu, selected several weavers from nearby towns and villages to travel to the neighboring Ivory Coast to become experts in the complex art form.

Today Kente cloth is still purely hand woven; no machinery is used. Weavers sit inside a wooden hand loom to create long narrow interwoven strips that are later sewn together by a tailor to make the traditional Kente cloths.

Kente is a very time-consuming cloth to weave by hand, which is why it’s expensive and a high-value item.
