Kente Cloth

The Kente Cloth is an Asante ceremonial cloth hand-woven on a horizontal treadle loom. It is made from threads of different colors. The weaver may use red, green, yellow and black threads to weave the strips of cloth. The cloth is  worn during very important social and religious occasions. Many variations of Kente are woven by various ethnic groups in Ghana and elsewhere in Africa.
