Kente Cloths

"First Grade Kente Cloths. Students learned about Ghana and the art of making Kente Cloths. Kente is an Asanti ceremonial cloth that is hand-woven on a loom. Four-inch strips are sewn together into larger pieces of cloth. Kente cloth comes in various colors, sizes, and designs and is worn during very important social and religious occasions. First graders imitated this art form by painting strips and gluing them down."
