Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of West African textile art with our vintage Ashanti Kente cloth. Handwoven in the 1970s in Ghana, this cloth is a true representation of the Ashanti weaving tradition, known for its intricate designs and vibrant colors.

Cloth Features:

  • Quality and Craftsmanship: This 'Woman size' cloth, measuring 75 3/4" x 38 1/4" (192 cm x 97 cm), is a masterpiece of traditional weaving, showcasing the complex art of strip weaving prevalent in the Ashanti culture.
  • Condition: The cloth is in very good condition, with one small size hole and minor stains and wear, adding to its vintage appeal and historical value.

Cultural Significance:

Originating from the Ashanti region, Kente cloth is more than just a textile. It's a visual representation of history, ethics, philosophy, and cultural values. Each pattern in Kente has a name or message, often reflecting proverbs, historical events, or important figures, symbolizing the high value of the cloth.

The Art of Weaving:

Weaving Kente is a skillful art traditionally considered a male practice. The cloth is made on a wooden loom, where multiple threads of dyed fabric are intricately woven together. This process can take several weeks to months, depending on the complexity of the design.

Authentic African Art: Our Ashanti Kente cloth from the 1970s is not just a piece of fabric; it's an authentic piece of African art, embodying the spirit of Ghanaian tradition and craftsmanship. Ideal as a traditional cloth in Ghana or as a unique decorative item for collectors and art enthusiasts.
