Authentic African Art

Each kente stole is a handwoven work of art created by a Master Weaver.

What is authentic Kente Cloth?

Authentic Kente Cloth is a handwoven work of art made in Ghana, West Africa. Kente Cloth was traditionally only worn by Kings and Queens in Ghana and is created by master craftsmen. Kente Cloth provides income to generations of master craftsmen and supports black businesses. This video shows you the skill and craftsmanship that goes into each Kente Cloth graduation stole we make and why each piece is a work of art. 

Since gaining popularity, our authentic kente stoles have been increasingly counterfeited. These imitation stoles, machine-made in China, are not handwoven in Africa and misrepresent true kente cloth. Moreover, they appropriate the work of African artists and mislead African American graduates into believing they are wearing authentic kente cloth. Don't compromise on your special day. Ensure you're getting authentic Kente Cloth, made in the tradition of African kings and queens and honoring the heritage of African artists, by buying directly from us.
