This narrow strip of kente cloth was created by Ewe weaver Felix Amegayie. It features a ‘Wogagba’ or snakeskin design that Ewe people developed out of Asidanuvor design cloth when they migrated to Togo. A full cloth was woven on commision, and this is a strip that was left over. Commissioning a cloth is expensive so they are usually purchased for special occassions or commissioned by dignitaries. This strip was purchased from the weaver during a visit to his weaving compound. Collected in Ghana as part of the Fashioning Africa project.
