GHANA’S KENTE IDENTIFIES AFRICANS – NANA ADDO. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says Ghana’s Kente has come to identify the African continent and its people. “Kente” is a brilliantly colourful fabric, entirely hand-woven by Ghanaian weavers. The brilliant colours and intricate designs associated with Kente have definitely made this fabric the best known of all Ghanaian, and perhaps even all West African textiles. Every design has a story with a proverbial meaning, giving each cloth its own distinction. Kente Kente cloth is usually worn for ceremonies, festivals, and other sacred occasions. It is also given as a gift for weddings, child naming ceremonies, graduations, and other special events.
