Photo for Vintage Ewe Kotokotoe Kente

Ewe Kente ceremonial wrapper in the distinctive kotokotoe design favoured by Ewe women.

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 Ewe region straddling the Ghana-Togo border.

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.

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

Approximate size: 110 x 144 cm / 43 x 56 inches
