General Information about Kente Cloth

Kente Cloth

What is Kente? Kente is a cloth or fabric local to Ghana and nearby West African countries. Legend has it that Kente Cloth was inspired by the weaving patterns of a spider as it weaves it’s web. (the spider is a famous figure in Ghanaian mythology and is referred to as Kwaku Ananse). Kente cloth is known locally as “nwentoma”. It can be made from various kinds of threads such as rayon, however it is best known to be made from silk. It is not just the kente cloth colors that make kente special, but the way the fabric is woven. Kente Cloth can come in many colors or just one solid color. If it is woven in the traditional manner then it is still referred to as Kente. If it is not woven but is kente inspired (like these kente cloth folding hand fans) then it is referred to as kente print

Graduation and Fraternity/Sorority Kente Stoles

Individual membership to one’s sorority or fraternity is a stark source of pride for students and alumni alike. It’s a link that exists even once one’s college days come to a close. Discovery of a shared membership has the power to connect people instantly. Without question, sorority and fraternity stoles are the perfect way to display pride and dedication for one’s organization after the group house has been left behind.

The memories, of course, play an important part in what lends the stole its lasting importance. Without question, graduation will hold a special place among these. On that day the stole is worn with dignity and honor; the bright colors of sororities and fraternities elegantly draped over each member’s shoulders.  What better way to exhibit one’s passion for his or her respective organization?

Clearly, quality is not something to be compromised when it comes to the stole’s construction and composition. Nothing but the absolute best should be worn on graduation day. Additionally, because it is to be something worth treasuring, it must be capable of remaining an impressive, striking piece of memorabilia for the alumnus. This requires superb resources and skill to create. Look to Kente Cloth LLC to provide such a quality stole.
