Antique African Ewe Kente Cloth Textile, Country of Origin: African, Circa Date: Antique

This lovely antique Ewe Kente Cloth created by Ewe weavers in Ghana depicts a delightful series of narrow compartmental strips decorated with vivid stripes and symbols. Prized for their unique striped patterns and vibrant colors, the creators of the traditional wearable textiles, Ewe Kente cloths, are woven in small strips and assembled to form a large cloth. The delightful compartmental segments are arranged to form enthralling staggered patterns. The colorful vertical stripes are juxtaposed against perpendicular plaid patterns that highlight the densely patterned weft. People, animals, leaves, hands, huts, geometric patterns and symbolic emblems are carefully woven into each boldly striped compartment. Ewe Kente cloths and handcrafts created by Ghana’s legendary Ewe weavers represent a highly evolved tradition of artistic textiles and wearable cloths that are decorated with symbolic motifs and emblems that represent aspects of everyday life in a colorful and whimsical manner.
