Kente is a Ghanaian textile which is made of handwoven cloth, strips of silk and cotton. Through history it was known to have been worn by the Ashantis and Ewe who are ethnic groups in Ghana, a West African country. In our modern day, it has become a piece / part of cloth which is added to our fashion wear to add extra color. Due to its popularity, we now see them globally as they are used as academic stoles in graduation ceremonies.
