African prints are emblematic and powerful. There is a deep and ancient history behind the multitude of fabrics made in Africa, some of which are said to be the first fabrics ever made by humans.
Kente fabric's origins come from Ghana, West Africa, and is a woven cloth that was allowed to be worn only by select royalty within the Asante Kingdom.
Now, this fabric is widely used and produced in many printed cotton versions, embraced by the African-American community and international fashion culture across the globe.
African wax print fabrics are associated with tribal patterns and motifs. Each design and color reflects traditions and symbols such as the tribe, marriage, and social status of the wearer. Some African women use specific colors and prints as a non-verbal way of communication.
