AS FEATURED ON THE DROP BY STYLIST MAGAZINE 

"In the UK, the joy of balmy weather is usually accompanied by a tinge of despair when you remember that public transport without air con is a thing. Want to be that person who makes everyone in the train carriage or bus jealous? Three words: get a fan.

Kente Creatives’ stylish handmade designs are brilliantly effective – and they don’t rely on half-used AA batteries that you’ve pilfered from the TV remote like those miniature electric fans. With a leather handle, these West African-inspired fold-up fans are available in six colours and patterns.

Plus, when you retire them from public transport duties when autumn arrives, Kente Creatives’ fans double as a statement wall decoration that will remind you of sunnier times come electric blanket season. It’s win-win."

 

THE ORIGINS OF KENTE CLOTH

Although the exact origins of kente are lost in time, the colorful patterned fabrics known as kente can be traced back to the Asante people of the Akan kingdom in what is now Ghana. The word "kente" actually translates to "handwoven cloth" in the Twi language of the Akan people.

 Kente is deep-rooted in Ghanaian culture and can be found in West African communities all around the world.
