A brief reminder of the origin of Kente
The origin of the Kente fabric comes partly from a historical legend from two cities in Ghana’s Asante region, Bonwire and Adawomase. On Bonwire’s side, a man named Otaa Kraban and his friend Kraku Amoagya de Bonwire learned the art of weaving by observing a spider weaving its web in 1650, and inspired by the spider web, they wove a band of raffia and later improved their technique. They reported their discovery to their leader, who in turn reported it to Asantehene. The Asantehenes adopted the royal arts as a precious and prestigious fabric, and became the guardians of Asante Kente.
From the historical art of Adawomase weaving, it traces its origin to northern Ouagadougou (now Burkina Faso) with the help of two Adawomase citizens, Nana Sarkodie and Nana Amankwa. They discovered this weaving technique during their usual trade mission north of Ouagadougou around 1750.
