Authentic Kente Cloth, hand-woven made in Ghana
In the year A.D. 1711 what is now Ghana, West Africa – two friends, Krugu Amoaya and Watah Kraban are hunting one afternoon and come across a spider weaving its web. Astounded by its skill and beauty, the friends return back to their village and recreate the spider’s techniques and weave cloth, by hand, out of black and white fibers from a raffia tree.
