Kente Weaving in Ghana

Video and Photos


Kente is a local fabric produce at Kpetoe in the Volta Region of Ghana. It originates in the pre colonial time and has been the only source of income to the people of Kpetoe and it neighboring communities. Kente comes with different designs, colors and can bear ones own signature. The durability of the fabric has won the heart of all Ghanaians, Africa and the international communities.

The industry has suffered in recent year due to lack of descent structures for weavers, lack or raw materials and easy market.

We there call on interested international interns who will serve in the capacity as an intern to, weave Kente, raise funds to build new structures, assist to buy raw materials and create online market for the fabric.
