Description

E1020 – Great colour combination on this distinctive and unusual Ewe kente men’s cloth – solid maroon cotton ground, dark blue weft blocks in the borders, and an offbeat array of green and cream silk extra weft float  motifs scattered, seemingly at random, across the central field. The name of the patron, Kwame Dedor, who commissioned the cloth from the master weaver, is also spelled out in supplementary weft float. Small animals, perhaps sheep and goats, are noticeable among the geometric motifs. This is a quirky example of a rather rare style since plain ground cotton cloths, as opposed to more routine rayon ones, were not often woven. In excellent condition.  Dates from circa 1930 -1950.

Measurement: 124 ins x 76, 315 cm x 194.
