Ewe Cloth Textile Ghana 66x46 Inch
Ewe Cloth is a type of lesser-known Kente cloth made by the Ewe people who are thought to be originally from Nigeria and migrated in the late 17th century to Togo, Ghana, and the Benin border. Kente cloth is the name given to handwoven fabrics in Ghana and Togo. The Ewe people, who live in Ghana and Togo, have textiles similar to the kente of their neighboring Ashante, but they are woven of cotton and are generally more muted. They are called "Keta" because they were originally produced in a coastal town of that name.
We do not recommend laundering textiles and do not accept returns of textiles that have been laundered in any manner. Even dry cleaning is too much for some of these antique textiles. For some of them, a very gentle HAND washing (NEVER MACHINE, on any setting) in cool water with a very gentle detergent works, but even then, dyes may not be colorfast, and fabric may be less strong than it appears.
