Description of the woven kente cushion 1-Step
The Kente textile patterns of the Ewe people of Eastern Ghana are both traditional and Contemporary. We have playfully revisited these motifs in our design studio. Designed by Sara Efia Reddin and woven by Master weavers in the Volta region of Ghana, this cotton cushion is a beautiful touch of graphic history.
Technics used to make the kente cushion 1-Step
Kente weaving is a a traditional African weaving technic from Ghana. The weaving is perfectly tight and smooth and consist of elaborate geometric patterns repeated on fine strips of fabric. Woven on a traditional loom in strips of around 15cm. The strips are then sewn together to create a beautiful patchwork cloth. The cushions are made by a local seamstress.
This cushion takes around 3 days to weave.
