Kente Stole is a Ghanaian handwoven stole using silk, rayon, polyester, or cotton, Kente cloth incorporates a variety of shapes and patterns, often in some combination of black, red, green, blue, and gold colors. On the academic stole, Kente patterns typically border a large margin of space on the garment reserved for text, such as the graduating class year, or the Greek letters of the student’s fraternity or sorority. However, some Kente stoles are themed from top to bottom in vibrant patterns reminiscent of West Africa. The garment drapes over and behind the student’s neck, with each long end reaching down near their waistline.
