WEAVING A

DUAL- IDENTITY


 Following the development of The weaver’s stool, the Kente Nsaa cloth is a  multi-layered expression of history, storytelling and Ghanaian diasporic identity through a contemporary lens. A fabric woven by a Black British woman of Ghanaian descent reflects the dual identity of the diaspora.  This demonstrates a break with tradition as the act of weaving is traditionally a male-dominated craft. Despite this, the cloth maintains its traditional function as a physical and spiritual form of protection to the Stool.
