The term “kente” refers to a Ghanaian textile made of handwoven cloth, strips of silk and cotton, and other materials (Akan: kente or nwetoma; Ewe: kete; Dagbani: Chinchini).
In the past, kings from ethnic groups like the Ashanti and Ewe wore the fabric in a toga-like form. Queens, princesses, and other Dagbon women also wear it.
