I had no idea Doran was thinking of doing a kente exhibit Nearly four years later, that conversation produced "Wrapped in Pride: Ghanaian Kente and African.

I had no idea Doran was thinking of doing a kente exhibit. I was just looking for people with expertise and so I told him my idea," she says. Nearly four years later, that conversation produced "Wrapped in Pride: Ghanaian Kente and African American Identity. The exhibit, unique for many reasons, is a comprehensive retrospective of kente doth's history, cultural significance, and meaning - both in Ghana and in the United States. Originally worn by Asante and Ewe royalty in Ghana, kente cloth is known for its remarkable color and weave.

Kente is not only the best known of all African textiles, it is also one of the most admired of all fabrics worldwide. Originating among the Asante peoples of Ghana and the Ewe peoples of Ghana and Togo, this brilliantly colored and intricately patterned strip-woven cloth was traditionally associated with royalty. Over time, however, it has come to be worn and used in many different contexts. In Wrapped in Pride, seven distinguished scholars present an exhaustive examination of the history of kente from its earliest use in Ghana to its present-day impact in the African Diaspora.

This is a wonderful book--if you can still find it---to introduce you to this cloth and the people who weave it. The oversized book is full of color pages and goes through the evolution of the cloth to the meaning and names of the cloth.
The book was put together as part of the UCLA Fowler exhibition in 1998.
Ignore the other comment about the binding. The book is WELL worth hunting for and using a little glue to put the cover back on should it come off.
If you like textiles, this book is a must for your library.

Wow! More than I anticipated. Graphics, history and people. A complete reference book on the subject. Worth every dollar spent.

The best resource book on the Kente available on the market. Everything you need to know about kente is here. Period.

Much information here about Ghanaian fabrics and the history of their usage. Beautiful pictures. Very poor binding, the cover of the paperback edition I bought fell off in about a week. Can I get my money back or get a new copy?

Excellent piece about Ghanaian Ewe Kete (a name that was corrupted into Kente just like "Okomfo from Notsie" was corrupted to Okomfo Anokye).
