This is authentic Antique ( 1970s ) African hand woven EWE KENTE cloth from Ghana.

This is a "Woman size" cloth and measures 74" ( 188 cm ) x 52" ( 132 cm ).

The person that commissioned this cloth used a distinctive weft float motif that appears only in 1 place on the cloth ( please see photo 3 ) and this makes this cloth unique.

The cloth is in excellent condition with only minor stains and wear due to usage and age. Please see photos.

Kente is an EWE ( Ghana - Volta Region ) Ceremonial cloth that is hand woven on a horizontal treadle loom.

The strips are sewn together into larger pieces of cloths.

It takes from several weeks to months for a weaver to complete a cloth like this depending of the design and size.

Kente is more than just a cloth but is a visual representation of history, ethics, oral literature, philosophy, moral values and religious beliefs.

The Kente cloths history goes back to the 17th Century.
