Mock Kente Skirt
Kente textiles unite history, everyday events, humour, death and sustainability in one cloth. The pattern of the woven cloth, where and when it is placed, tells the observer its context of meaning. Ties, like the cloth, tell particular stories about men: status through quality or label, class through design or style, mood through colour or pattern. Sewn together and then re-cut, I have created a garment of many recycled stories, re- recycled by me to create something new about the present and therefore the future, founded in the past.
