Collection: Ewe Kente Cloths

Handwoven Ewe Kente Cloth from Ghana West Africa

Ewe Kente Cloths await you on our website, where you can step into the world of timeless elegance with our collection of older pieces. These authentic African treasures, handwoven in the Volta Region of Ghana, hold an eternal charm that is sure to captivate your senses.

Crafted with the utmost skill, these vintage Ewe Kente cloths share an identical form of the narrow-strip loom technique with the Ashanti people. However, what truly distinguishes them is the inclusion of mesmerizing figurative designs. These intricately woven cloths depict a vibrant array of animals such as fishes, cows, sheep, and horses, as well as human figures, ceremonial stools, combs, trees, and household objects.

Men can embrace the elegance of these cloths as robe-style garments, draping them across their shoulders and around their bodies like togas. For women, the Ewe kente is worn in three pieces, consisting of a skirt, blouse, and an additional piece that can be used as a shawl or draped over the arm.

Beyond their cultural significance, these cloths serve as exceptional home decorations, adding a touch of artistry to any space.

Discover the allure of older Ewe Kente cloths and embrace the vibrant traditions of West Africa in style.
