Kente Cloth

Filed under: Woodworking — thefusionguy @ 12:09 am

In the Accra, Ghana, art market we bought two pieces of kente cloth. I made a frame of canarywood for it, and we hung it in the bedroom. This is a particularly nice piece of kente cloth, made in the “old style” according to the seller. There’s nothing machine-made in this cloth!
