Kente is a brilliantly colorful fabric, entirely hand-woven by Ghanaian weavers. The brilliant colors and intricate designs associated with Kente have definitely made this fabric the best known of all Ghanaian, and perhaps even all West African textiles. Every design has a story with a proverbial meaning, giving each cloth its own distinction.
