Description

E931 – This vivid green cotton ground Ewe kente woman’s cloth is notable for the exceptional quantity and variety of the neatly woven supplementary weft float motifs which include numerous unique and idiosyncratic variations forms.  Probably due to the high cost of commissioning cloths with this quantity and quality of float  motifs and the lesser resources for ceremonial dress available to most Ewe women very few women’s cloths of this quality were woven. Dates from around 1950.  Condition is excellent (one small old repair circa 2cm diameter.)

Measurements: 76 ins x 53, 194 cms x 135.
