Description

K297 – A fine early C20th woman’s kente cloth with three different strip designs. Mainly cotton with some silk in the warp of the coloured strips and in the weft float motifs. Both the narrower than usual strips – 6.5 cm rather than the typical 9 or 10 cm – and the use of pattern blocks made up of three groups of weft stripes rather than two, are indicators of an early date of around 1900 for this finely woven and beautiful piece. Early and interesting Asante kente is very hard to source and this is especially true of women’s cloths. In excellent condition

Measurement: 76 inches x 55 ins, 194 cm x 134 cm
