Considered one of the most significant textiles of the African subcontinent, kente cloth was historically made from silk, reserved for chiefs and kings, and worn as festive dress on special occasions, such as a gathering of elders or the inauguration of new royalty. This style of kente cloth comes from the Ewe people of Togo and Ghana. Ewe kente abounds with proverbial symbolism of both animal and inanimate kind.
