A tightly woven fabric from Ghana’s Northern Region
ALSO KNOWN AS “FUGU” OR “SMOCK” FABRIC
Batakari is another indigenous Ghanaian fabric that features a unique blend of stripes and solids. It is woven on a wider loom than kente.
It is handwoven mostly by women in Northern Ghana, an area that has been economically disadvantaged as compared to the rest of the country. When you purchase Batakari, you help provide jobs in local communities.
QUALITY, VERSATILE CLOTH
The fabric is commonly used to make for traditional smocks, as Ghana’s Northern Region experiences harsher weather conditions. The cloth is also used for wedding attire, everyday fashion, & accessories.
