Authentic, handwoven kente cloth is one of the most significant pieces of Ghanaian culture. This fabric is sacred—usually associated with royalty and worn during special occasions. Many people also display kente around their home, and it is also used to make accessories.

We are working with kente weavers from the Bonwire in Ghana’s Ashanti Region to inform individuals about culturally appropriate ways to use kente. For example, according to Master Weaver Eric Kwarteng, kente should not be used as a doormat, rug, or chair cushion. We are also creating a digital kente cloth library that identifies all pattern names and meanings. Stay tuned!
