The Web Of Beauty & Royalty
Legend has it that kente was first made by two Akan friends who went hunting in an Asanteman forest and found a spider making its web. The friends stood and watched the spider for two days then returned home and implemented what they had seen.
Kente cloth is special on many levels. 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 and royals.
Over time, the use of kente became more widespread. In modern day Ghana, where the tradition of weaving Kente cloth began centuries ago, it’s a sign of national and ethnic pride; worn on all Occasions.
