This narrow strip woven kente cloth was created by Ewe weaver Joseph Wordu. This type of striped cloth is called ‘Ehianaga’ meaning ‘it needs money’ in Ewe. These are woven in the coastal Agozume region only. It is a simple and quick cloth to weave, produced for everyday wear. Joseph sells these at his local textiles market in Agbozume. This cloth was bought from Joseph on a visit to his workshop, where he introduced the museum team to the weavers and demonstrated the processes involved in creating a kente cloth. Collected in Ghana for the Fashioning Africa project.
