Kente cloth is a type of silk and cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips and is native to the Ashanti tribe of South Ghana. The icon of African cultural heritage around the world, Kente cloth is identified by its dazzling, multicolored patterns of bright colors, geometric shapes, and bold designs. Kente characterized by weft designs woven into every available block of plain weave is called adweneasa. The Akan/ Ashanti people choose Kente cloths as much for their names as their colors and patterns.
