More Information About African Fabrics

  • hold a special meaning in the hearts of Africans because they each tell a story to the wearer. You see, in Africa clothes aren’t just clothes... the colors, the designs, even the fabrics used are completely unique in that they each have their own history, their own story, their own symbolism.

  • No fabric is more associated with Africa than the vibrant colors of

    . Kente fabric is instantly identifiable to African culture, and therefore is a big hit during Black History Month. Native to the country of Ghana, kente cloth has a strong spiritual value. It is a royal and sacred fabric worn only in times of extreme importance in Africa. Kente is called ‘the cloth of kings’ and over time the use of kente cloth has become more widespread.

  • has gold strands interwoven throughout the fabric, and detailed gold embroidery around the hems of skirts, sleeves, head wraps, and many times the neckline. George garments literally shimmer when you wear them because of all the interwoven gold threads. George fabric is made in India, but is exported to Africa in large quantities because it is so popular there, especially for formal events and weddings. Occasionally George fabric from Africa Imports will run out of stock.  Read more about George Fabric here.

  • is very similar to mudcloth, which is a more familiar fabric to many people. It is produced in the Ivory Coast, in West Africa; and is named after the village of Korhogo in the northern part of Ivory Coast. Korhogo cloth is produced by painting a design on hand spun, hand woven, and hand painted cotton fabric. This is often done using a stencil; and the painting is done with a specially fermented solution that turns black after a reasonable amount of time has passed. Korhogo cloth is used in making clothing and craft items. It is most popular as a truly authentic wall decoration.  Learn more about the meaning of Korhogo Cloth here.

  • is one of the most notable fabrics from the continent. Each piece of mudcloth has a story to tell! The symbols, the arrangement, color and shape, all reveal different secrets.  Social statues, characters and occupation, these are all things which a piece of mudcloth communicates. Even now African people are very careful about what they wear, as each fabric, color and dress is interpreted by others. What you wear shows what kind of person you are!

  • is just starting to become popular in the United States. Using the leaf of the raffia tree, the Kuba people of the Congo first hand cut, and then weave the strips of leaf to make pieces of fabric, often called raffia cloth. There are several different sub groups of the Kuba people. Read more about Kuba Cloth here.
