Legend has it that in the middle part of the 17th century AD, at Bonwire in Asante, two brothers from the Asona clan of Bonwire, Kuragu and Ameyaw, who were hunters and farmers by profession and hardly 20 years old, studied the way and manner, the spider (Ananse) wove its web in a forest at Bonwire-Kurankye (Ayewakeseho).
Kente comes from the word kenten, which means basket in the Asante dialect of Akan. Akans refer to kente as nwentoma, meaning woven cloth. It is an Akan royal and sacred cloth worn only in times of extreme importance and was the cloth of kings. Over time, the use of kente became more widespread.
Kente cloth is special on many levels. Around the world, the unique patterns and colors are easily identifiable as a representation of West African culture. ... This gives each Kente design its own unique, symbolic value. Kente cloth may symbolize the wearer's status or mark a festive occasion.
