Photo for Vintage Ewe Kente cloth

Woman's Ewe Kente ceremonial wrapper.

Kente is probably the most recognisable of Africa's many traditional textiles, adopted by Africans around the world as a symbol of their heritage. Early cloths were woven with imported silk, but since the 1920s Kente weavers have used rayon or rayon mixed witih cotton.

Handwoven, from the Volta region straddling the border between Ghana and Togo.

Though this cloth is up to 25 years old, it is in excellent condtion. The cloth has aged gracefully and has a lovely, soft feel.

Note: Minor damage to selvedge, lower right corner. See image, marked with yellow circle.

Old Ewe Kente cloths in good condition are very rare and expensive, but this smaller piece is a great example at an affordable price.

Approximate size: 132 x 183 cm / 51 x 72 in.
