Kente weavers consulting with Nubuke for KORLEKIE

Kente fabrics are created using cotton and satin rayon threads, which gives the Kente its beautiful lustre.

From the collaboration with Nubuke, we created two beautiful crop cocoon style jackets, products we hope to continue in the near future in support of the foundation. Stay tuned.
