We use our platforms and special projects to showcase Ghana’s arts, music, cultural traditions, and beautiful land scapes.

Festivals in Ghana are celebrated for many reasons pertaining to a particular tribe or culture, usually having backgrounds relating to an occurrence in the history of that culture. Examples of such occurrences have been hunger, migration, purification of either gods or stools, etc.

The Vivacious And Famous “Kente” From Ghana!

At the mention of Kente, the first thought is the Asantes from Ghana. Yes, there are several groups that are also associated with Kentes, but the Asante people are more in touch with Kente cloth than anyone else. It was created 375 years ago in a village called Bonwire in the Ghana, Asante region and was established between 1701 and 1717. This was when the Asante King (Asantehene), Nana Osei Tutu I was ruling. Interestingly, the first cloth was made of raffia fiber and belonged to the Asante clan. Years later, there was a redesign of the cloth.

Kente, aka “Nwentoma” in the language of the Asantes, is silk and cotton made of tangled pieces of cloth. “Nwentoma” means woven cloth. In fact, the cloth is traditional clothing of the Asantes from Kumasi in the Asante region in Ghana. Call on one of the Asante Festivals to justify my claim, and your attention will be focused entirely on any of the Asante events, which take place every year. Enjoy the original color representation in beautifully woven kente.

In Ghana, there are more than 350 models of Kente. The pattern is made by hand weaving and determined by the braid of yarn. Only if you want it for certain occasions, there are a number of genuine and very popular models that will make your spirit easier to accept when you wrap them around.

Adwinasa is one of the best Kente models with a unique style. These are decorative images that repeat in design or pattern. Historically, the person who designed the adwinasa fabric had the motive of collecting unique fabrics to satisfy the king of Asantehene. Unfortunately, he used all patterns for only one material. And it is stunning!. The cloth is considered as one of the most luxurious designs from Asantes with rich kings who wear them. The cloth is represented by all the adjectives – elegant, expressive, brilliant in appearance and extraordinary.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning failure. – OLIVER SANDERO
