Kente cloth, the golden bridal appeal for traditional engagement in Ghana.

Ghanaian traditional weddings are the epitome of splendor for a reason: the kente styles represent the beautiful Ghanaian culture and heritage.

Ghanaian brides and grooms frequently wear matching ceremonial attire for their weddings.

The Kente cloth is available in a variety of eye-catching styles that you may want to wear on your wedding day.

Why the golden kente cloth?

You can never go wrong with African attire for your engagement celebration.

Originally, kente was only used by Asante royalty and for special social and religious occasions.

Despite the fact that production has increased and kente has become more widely available outside of the royal court, it remains synonymous with wealth, high social status, and cultural sophistication.

History of the kente cloth.

Originally, kente was only used by Asante royalty and for special social and religious occasions.

Kente is a unique fabric that is instantly recognizable around the world.

Strip weaving, a form of making kente, has been used in West Africa since the 11th century.

In 1697, Osei Tutu, the King of the Ashanti Kingdom, picked a group of weavers from neighboring towns and villages to study the complex art form in the Ivory Coast.

They began weaving the beautiful and colorful cloth exclusively for the King when they returned to Ghana, since kente was originally made and worn only by the royals.
