Kente fabric is a type of silk and pure cotton fabric with traditional patterns of geometric motifs, composed of stripes and made on a loom. It is typical of the Akan people, an ethnic group in southern Ghana.

The art of kente weaving is allowed only to men who, on small sliding looms, weave the tight strips of cotton and silk. They are then cut and sewn together lengthwise to create male and female garments similar to togas. E ach thread tells a story, displaying vibrant patterns and colors that symbolize important values, beliefs and events. The geometric patterns and specific colors of Kente cloth have symbolic meanings, conveying messages about history and social status in the Ashanti community.

It is a traditional craft of the Ashanti community of that country.
