Important introductory information about the traditional Kente dress that the Ghanaian team appeared in when it arrived in Abidjan.

Traditional Kente Cloth:

The term “Kente” refers to Ghanaian weaving, made of hand-woven cloth and strips of silk and cotton.  Historically, the cloth was worn in a toga-like fashion by royalty among the Ewe and Akan. According to Ashanti oral tradition, it originated from Bonwire.

In the Ashanti region of Ghana. In contemporary Ghana, the wearing of kente cloth has become widespread to celebrate special occasions, with highly sought-after brands led by professional weavers. Kente is also worn in parts of Togo and Ivory Coast by the Ewe and Akan people there.

Due to the popularity of Kente cloth patterns, mass-produced prints using Kente patterns became popular throughout West Africa, and thus in the whole of Africa. Globally, typography is used in the design of academic shawls.
