This colorful Kente is handmade by Vocational Students at The Volta School for the Deaf in Hohoe, Ghana, West Africa in a manner that dates back to their ancestors. Kente was originally worn only by the nobility in West Africa and is highly revered today. This pillow is fashioned from strips of kente cloth that have been sewn together by a school mentor, who is assisting in the development of the tailors and seamstresses in the vocational department.

The major colors in the kente striping are turquoise, purple, red, shades of green, shades of orange, and brown. The back of the pillow is also kente that has been weaved in a tweedy pattern using green, yellow, brown and black thread. Look carefully at the close-up photos to see all of the colors. There is a zippered opening where you can insert the pillow form.

Proceeds from this sale go to the development of the Volta School for the Deaf.

Pillow forms are available for an additional $12.00 which includes added shipping charges.
