Description of the woven kente cushion Rhythmic
The Kente textile patterns of the Ewe people of Eastern Ghana traditionally play with simple repetition. In the studio our designer Sara Efia Reddin has creatively played with these motifs, updating them with new colours and pared down combinations. Woven by Master Weavers in the Volta region of Ghana, these cotton cushions are piece of craft heritage.
