Wrapped in Pride: Ghanaian Kente and African American Identity
How to wear kente

There is an art to wearing kente. To wear kente properly, it must be worn so that the woven patterned strips are straight horizontally and vertically. In addition, the bottom edge of the cloth should be even all the way around.

Men's cloth typically consists of 20 to 27 strips; women's, 12 to 15 strips.
