What is authentic Kente Cloth?

Authentic Kente Cloth is a handwoven work of art made in Ghana, West Africa. Kente Cloth was traditionally only worn by Kings and Queens in Ghana and is created by master craftsmen. Kente Cloth provides income to generations of master craftsmen and supports black businesses. There are a lot of graduation stole options to choose from so rather than writing a thousand words explaining why Sankofa Edition's authentic Kente Cloth is so special, we decided to create a video instead. This video will show you the skill and craftsmanship that goes into each Kente Cloth graduation stole we make and why each piece is a work of art. We hope you enjoy it!

 

Our Kente Cloth is authentic. You can tell by checking the hand-embroidery details on the back of the cloth.

Five star review

When I received my kente stole in the mail, I cried. I'm really graduating from college and the stole really made it real. My grandparents would be really proud of me. I am so proud to be walking with my kente stole. Thank you. - Barbette Thames, Class of 2020 

Kente Cloth must be handwoven in Ghana to be considered authentic. Kings and Queens in Ghana wear this beautiful work of art for special occasions and celebrations. It took a lot of hard work and determination to get to where you are now, and this genuine Kente Cloth Graduation Stole honors your achievement and helps you tell your story. This Kente Cloth will make your photos pop. You will stand out from the crowd at graduation and impress many when you walk across the stage wearing this vibrant kente cloth sash.

The symbol on this stole is the "Sankofa Bird" which depicts a bird looking backwards while flying forward. The Sankofa Bird on this stole sits on the Golden Throne, which represents Royalty. Sankofa is a Ghanaian word which means "it is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” The word is a combination of the words: san (return), ko (go), fa (seek and take). “Sankofa” teaches us to go back to our roots in order to move forward.

This stole measures approximately 4.5 inches wide by 72 inches long and is the ideal size for most graduates. It includes an ADVANSYNC LLC Certificate of Authenticity, so you know you are wearing genuine Kente Cloth.
