Thank you for your feedback. We do not carry the real, woven Kente from Afrca for a couple of reasons. One, is that is tends to be very difficult to find and ship to us.  Another is that is it extremely expensive for us, which would mean a much more expensive cost for our customers compared to the Kente print.  We appreciate your business!
