Where does the Kente cloth come from?

Kente is one of the world's best-known and most widely revered African textiles. It is produced in greater quantity, exported to more places and incorporated into a greater variety of forms than any other African fabric. Kente is a hand-woven, narrow strip cloth that often incorporates bright, primary colors with richly patterned motifs at regular intervals. Long strips are pieced together to create the large toga-sized textile that has long been a part of traditional Ghanaian society and ritual culture.

Over time, Kente has taken on multiple meanings and uses beyond its original role in Ghanaian society. Today, Kente is widely embraced in African American society as a prominent symbol of black identity and unity. From greeting cards and book-covers to clothing and household accessories, Kente has served as inspiration for many visual art forms.

Today Kente also serves as an international symbol for the entire African continent, as evidenced by the eye-catching Kente wall-hanging proudly displayed in one of the United Nation’s main corridors.


Where does the Serape come from?

The origin of the Serape is unknown, but it is thought likely that its roots can be traced both to Native American and Spanish cultures.

The role of the Serape has changed throughout time. During the early 1800s, the Serape was associated with the Mexican fight for freedom and democracy, and became a national symbol during the Mexican Independence movement.

Many in Mexico embraced the Serape as their garment of choice. For them, the Serape represented a return to the ideals of the cowboy. Vaqueros, Mexican cowboys, used Serapes as protection against the elements and as blankets.
