Description

A fine classic version of the Asante kente design where rectangles echo the shape of Asante wooden shields to create a traditional design that was called “a thousand shields “. I posted a modified version a few days ago on a dark blue ground but this blue on white kente strip weave men’s cloth is the original. Here it has a strong border pattern with solid blocks of blue setting off the central field. In excellent condition, dates from circa 1950s.

Measures 280 cm x 180, 110 inches x 71.
