The origins of the Kente cloth go back over 400 years to West Africa between Benin and Ghana. While its invention is often attributed to the people of the Asante Tribe, the Kente cloth may have instead been invented by the people in the Ewe Tribe, who later shared the tradition with the Asante.
Like other fabrics, kente cloth is woven on a loom. But instead of using a loom the same width as the finished fabric which might be eight feet wide Asante weavers use a narrow loom. They weave a very long strip of fabric about the width of a hand. The strip is then cut into pieces, which are sewn together to make the finished cloth.
