    Bonwire Weaving Cooperative: Kente cloth

    by perdita Written Mar 3, 2005

    The cooperative is a huge warehouse like building. Inside independent weavers work their looms and display their cloth on the walls. Tourists can bargain with the weavers for various pieces of genuine Kente cloth.

    What to buy: You should know that Kente cloth is a product of the Asante culture that thrived in western Africa for centuries. Certain patterns are only worn by royalty. Only men are permitted to weave Kente cloth.

    You will find yourself surrounded on the walk to and from the cooperative by boys hawking small kente purses, bookmarks and such. Some of these kids are learning to weave and these are their initial efforts.

    What to pay: Much less than you would pay in the United States. Some large pieces ran around $35 to $50 US

    by Alpha_Ghana Written May 16, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: Did you know that Ghana was an exporter of Shea Nut? (Beurre de karite)
    This miracle product enters in the composition of lots of European products, main one is Chocolat.

    However, Shea nut has also great qualities for skin maintenance:
    for pregnant women: prevent from skin scratches and skin distorsions of the belly and breast.

    For the face: prevents and cures age signs: all big companies mix shea butter with perfumes, making 1000% of profit and sell that in small boxes. In fact, the main component is often shea butter.

    What to pay: 5000 cedis for a bowl in the market

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Centre of National Culture also known as Arts Centre in Accra you find hundreds of stalls and small shops, which sell all kind of artisan goods from all over the country.
    You can find wooden carvings, masks, beads, brass work, leather work, cloth, drums, but also African music and paintings, made by local artists.
    Louis a rasta-boy I met at Akuma Village invited me in his Powerful Drums (work)shop. He and his friends showed me all kind of drums and other music instruments, especially by playing them.
