Description

Superb graphic weft faced Ewe women’s kente from Eastern Ghana with a regular alternation of red and dark indigo blue square blocks, separated by wide white stripes across the cloth. Ewe people loved this red blue and white combination, and particularly this rich red colour, but complete cloths in this style are scarce. Here there are wide borders where weft stripe and weft float motifs are added to the basic squares configuration.  In excellent condition. Dates from circa 1920 – 1940.

Measurement: 86ins x 43, 219 cm x 110.
