After visiting the Craft Market, we went to another small village and visited a facility with numerous Kente cloth weavers, and glorious colorful Kente cloth covering all the walls. Here is one corner of the room.
The colors and variety of patterns were stunning--and admidst all this vibrant Kente cloth we began to bargain with the men selling the cloth.
Here is one weaver--weaving a Kente cloth strip on a loom
We could purchase the strips of handwoven cloth or a large piece with the strips sewn together
I couldn't quit taking photos of all the different colorways and patterns...
Among the handwoven Kente cloth--the vendors were also selling some printed cotton fabrics...and sometimes the Kente cloth was sewn together with the printed cloth, like this piece
I snapped a few pics of some of the printed cloth, also
I find myself wishing I had taken a few more close-up photos of the Kente cloth, but came home with one beautiful strip and a larger piece--for some reason, I was attracted to blues that day...
