2016 - KENTE
My father is from Benin 🇧🇯 a west african country located next to Ghana.
If you haven't heard of Ghana, you must have been living under the rocks! Besides its advanced economy, I've always been impressed with Ghanaians' attachment to their traditions. Indeed, Kente is one of them.
Kente, also known as Ghanaian fa, is one of my favorite prints. It has a wide variety of geometrical patterns and colors.
The picture above is the royal print, formerly worn by Akans, Ashanti and Ewe Kings. Overtime, its usage has spread to many other parts of Africa.
The point here is : it's the perfect print to be incorporated to my OBA designs.
As a matter of fact, I'd totally wear it for my wedding :)
