KSh15,000

Kente, known as nwentoma in Akan, is a type of silk and cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips. Kente is made in Akan lands such as the Ashanti Kingdom,[1] including the towns of BonwireAdanwomaseSakora Wonoo, and Ntonso in the Kwabre areas of the Ashanti Region.[2] This fabric is worn by almost every Ghanaian tribe. Kente comes from the word kenten, which means basket in the Asante dialect of Akan. Akans refer to kente as nwentoma, meaning woven cloth. It is an Akan royal and sacred cloth worn only in times of extreme importance and was the cloth of kings.[3] Over time, the use of kente became more widespread. However, its importance has remained and it is held in high esteem by southern Ghanaians. Globally, it is used in the design of academic stole in graduation ceremonies.
