KENTE CLOTH INSPIRATION ( OUR TRIBUTE TO GHANA)

So as many of you may know at Styles- Afrik we love to use Kente Print in alot of our designs. So we thought today we would share with you the history behind the Kente Cloth and what each colour on a Kente Cloth represents.

So here is some history……

Kente cloth, known as nwentom in Akan, is a type of silk and cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips and is native to the Akan ethnic group of South Ghana. Kente is made in Akan lands such as Ashanti Kingdom, (Bonwire, Adanwomase, Sakora Wonoo, Ntonso in the Kwabre areas of the Ashanti Region) and by Akans in Ivory Coast. It is also worn by many other groups who have been influenced by Akans. It is the best known of all African textiles.

 It is an Akan royal and sacred cloth worn only in times of extreme importance and was the cloth of kings. Over time, the use of Kente became more widespread. However, its importance has remained and it is held in high esteem with Akans.

Meanings of the colours in Kente cloth:

  • black—maturation, intensified spiritual energy
  • blue—peacefulness, harmony and love
  • green—vegetation, planting, harvesting, growth, spiritual renewal
  • gold—royalty, wealth, high status, glory, spiritual purity
  • grey—healing and cleansing rituals; associated with ash
  • maroon—the color of mother earth; associated with healing
  • pink—assoc. with the female essence of life; a mild, gentle aspect of red
  • purple—assoc. with feminine aspects of life; usually worn by women
  • red—political and spiritual moods; bloodshed; sacrificial rites and death.
  • silver—serenity, purity, joy; associated with the moon
  • white—purification, sanctification rites and festive occasions
  • yellow—preciousness, royalty, wealth, fertility, beauty

Legend

Legend has it that Kente was first made by two Akan friends who went hunting in an the Asanteman forest found a spider making its web. The friends stood and watched the spider for two days then returned home and implemented what they had seen.

STYLES-AFRIK IS BACK BIGGER AND BETTER

During our 2 year break we have had alot of time to research the market and find a product that is:

  1. Value for money
  2. Superior quality
  3. Attention to detail
  4. Bang on trend and style

In order to capture all of these components we decided to launch our own brand of clothing line. During our time operating Styles-Afrik we received alot of feedback on how to improve the service, so we decided to listen to our customers.

The new site is alot more interactive, clean and very easy to navigate, we also made improvements to the turnaround and stock availability issue. The New Styles-Afrik Clothing line is entirely custom made, we allow the customer to choose the design they want from our collection and the fabric they wish to have it made in. We then ask for your measurements and we make the garment for you and deliver to your door ( Worldwide).

WHY CUSTOM MADE? 

Many of you provided us feedback that you wished garments could be tailored made to your specific measurements, so we listened.
