Description

Exceptional Asante kente woman’s cloth with silk extra weft float motifs on a white cotton ground. The repeated zigzag motifs vary subtly throughout and are echoed by the single lines of reversed zigzags that separate the central field from the borders. Asante kente silk cloths of this quality are ultra rare and finding one among the myriad of run-of-the-mill pieces in the market in Accra is always exciting. Dates from circa 1920-30, has recently been cleaned by our conservator, and is in excellent complete condition.
Measurements 83 inches x 44, 211 cm x 112.
