The traditional kente or kita is a traditional ethnic garment belonging to the Akans group (Agnis, Baoulés, Abron, Attiés etc.), also used by the ethnic groups Krous (Bété, Dida, Godié etc.) of Côte d’Ivoire, Ga and Ewes from Ghana and Togo.
Originally, it is a royal fabric worn by Akan kings and notables of high society. Handmade, the manufacture of kente or kita consists in weaving cotton or silk threads, of several colors between them. Long strips are thus obtained, which are connected one after the other. The patterns and figures of the fabric have precise meanings according to the cultures.
