The design is inspired by Ghanaian ‘Kente’ cloth. Kente is a brightly colored traditional cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips made and native to the Akan ethnic group of Ghana. Kente is a prominent symbol of Ghanaian and African arts and culture. There are over 350 patterns for Kente Cloths. The patterns are created during the hand weaving process and are determined by the manner in which the threads are intertwined.
