Beautiful and rare weft faced Ewe women’s kente with a regular alternation of red and yellow rectangular blocks, each separated by a pair of white and indigo dyed blue weft stripes, while each yellow block is bisected by a narrow blue stripe. The red in the single warp faced lower edge strip and a few of the blocks has faded to a pleasing pink colour. Although fragments and badly damaged pieces of this type of cloth turn up fairly often, it is rare to get an early and complete example such as this. There is a single very small worn mark, shown in one of the detail photos. Dates from circa 1900.
Measurement: 86ins x 44, 219 cm x 113.
