E1073 – Exceptional and finely woven chief’s kente cloth

Email for Price



Every available space on this beautiful cloth has been crowded with extra weft float patterning in both geometric and figurative motifs, including animals and birds, all set off a dark green and dark blue striped background. an edgy angular theme unites these diverse shapes, while the colours are picked up in the large blocks of white, yellow and orange across the strips, themselves forming shifting diagonals as the cloth was in motion. Cloths of this quality were never plentiful and very few become available these days. Dates from circa 1930s-1950s. Excellent condition.

Measurement: 122ins x 76, 310 cm x 194.
