Cross Cultural Weaves Potential for Ghanaian Cultural Identity

Abstract

The study focus on Asante’s indigenous “Kente” weavers at Bonwire, Centre for National Culture, Kumasi, and weavers from the Northern and Volta regions are mainly because of the fact that they are the regions in Ghana that are known for creating the cloth. This concept provides an opportunity to help unite indigenous textile weaving industries in the Northern, Ashanti and Volta regions in Ghana. The study reviews existing work on traditional weaving practices leading to the production of ‘fugu’, ‘kente’ and ‘kete’ in the Northern, Ashanti and Volta regions respectively so as to be able to build a conceptual framework that is appropriate. The extent of this exploration is entirely a push to think about the utilisation of weaving techniques from the three regions to enhance their cultural identity. This covered the weaving centres in the whole of the chosen regions, but due to time constraints, only a few centres were chosen. The approach of the study was qualitative research methods and the instrument used to collect data were mainly interviewed (one-to-one) and participant observation with players in the traditional weaving industry and then some secondary data.
