       HISTORY OF KENTE

Popular “KENTE CLOTH” originates from Ghana, West Africa and is a personalized hand woven ceremonial cloth, but it is far more than just a beautiful textile. The various colors and intricate patterns represent the history, ethics, values, philosophy and religious beliefs of the Ghana people. Each Ghanaian weaver hand-weaves a personal story into each Kente Cloth which is proudly worn by kings and people of high status and wealth.

Our Kente Style Ribbon is quite similar to the “Adwin Asa” pattern symbolizing:
Creativity, Ingenuity, Mastery, Innovation, Elegance, Royalty and Perfection

Meaning of the Kente Colors in these ribbons:
GOLD—royalty, wealth, high status, glory, spiritual purity
GREEN—vegetation, planting, harvesting, growth, spiritual renewal
BLACK—maturation, intensified spiritual energy
RED—political and spiritual moods
WHITE—purification, sanctification rites and festive occasions
