Improving African Futures Using Lessons from the Past

Handwoven textiles called Mmɔlɔ Kyara, Ahenkro, 2014


Description:
Two folded textiles made from handwoven cotton strips, pieced together in a design called Mmɔlɔ Kyara. They were photographed while on display at a Heritage Day and Olden Times Food Fair held at the Banda Cultural Centre. One cloth is made from alternating strips of white and blue-and-white striped cloth. The other is made of similar blue-and-white strips, in which white weft threads create a checkered design.
