Ghana's Fashion History by Fashtracker: 6:14pm On Sep 26, 2022
Ghana's fashion history extends back to pre-colonial times. It should be noted that the West African country has some of the greatest fashion in the area. In truth, the famed Ghanaian fabric was found near the Ashanti area of Ghana, in the hamlet of Bonwire. Kente was, and probably still is, one of the most well-known African textiles. Kente is a woven textile. It was great for monarchs and chieftains since it was used for beautiful decoration. The kente clothing is still worn for festivals and other traditional events in current times.
Ghanaian fashion was not always like it is now. Kente was the Ghanaian people's initial traditional clothing. Because it was worn during certain ceremonial events, the various hues of the Kente carry varied connotations even now. In fact, it is said that Ghana is responsible for the advancement and development of Subsaharan fashion. The initial components of fabric manufacture, however traditional, were carried out in the Ashanti community of Bonwire. The idea of creating Kente clothing, which grew to be one of the most prominent African fabrics, was offered to the population of the area. Kenten, which means basket, inspired the name of the kente textile. The original Ashanti people called the Kente fabric Nwentoma, which means "woven cloth." The unique fabric was only worn by leaders and kings. It is still used for special events nowadays.
