Photo for Vintage Kente Cloth

Blue and white Mmabam N'toma Kente cloth. Handwoven, from Ashanti region, Ghana.

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.

Though this cloth could be up to 25 years old, it is in excellent condtion. The cloth has aged gracefully and has a lovely, soft feel. Note: some joins in the strips that are hardly noticeable from the front. 

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

Approximate size: 95 x 157 cm / 37 x 61 in.
