Kente - Woven Ceremonial Cloths of Ghana

Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Intended to provide a complete and permanent record of surviving traditions and skills in textiles and crafts, the Ends of the Earth unique series show the processes in full, in detail and with all the clarity and colour made possible by modern video cameras. In many ways they are better than being there - pausing and replaying gives the possibility of checking again where the quickness of the hands has eluded or deceived the eye. Kente is one of Africa's most celebrated textiles. Kente is woven in long narrow bands. Finished strips are cut to the same length and sewn together to produce a large cloth. Kente's bold and colourful patterns are intricately woven and each design and finished cloth has a name and a meaning. Filmed in Ghana. Contents include: warping up, weaving on two heddles, weaving on four heddles, Ashante Kente designs, Ewe weaving at Agbozume, Ewe weaving at Sogakofe.
