African print fabrics come from different countries on the continent, and from other continents too. But there's one particular fabric from Ghana that's caught my attention the last few months. Kente.
Kente is from the Ashanti, or Asante, people are from Ghana, on the western coast of Africa. The Ashanti tribe practices a variety of arts, from wood carving to metal casting, but they are known mostly for their weaving, particularly of a special cloth called kente.
The term is rooted in the word “kenten,” or basket.
