More about the Kente Cloth on our Mamba Africa Sweat Belt

Kente cloth, known locally as nwentoma, is a type of silk fabric made of interwoven cloth strips and is native to the country of Ghana.  It is an icon of African cultural heritage around the world and is identified by its dazzling multicoloured patterns of bright colours, geometric shapes and bold designs.  It is used for its symbolic significance and each cloth has a name and a meaning.  Each pattern has a name and a meaning.  Names and meanings are derived from historical events, individual achievements, proverbs, philosophical concepts, oral literature, moral values, social code of conduct, human behaviour and certain attributes of plant and animal life.  (Sources: wikipedia and midwesttradegroup.com)
