Ghana has a reputation for producing high quality, traditionally designed printed cloth. The widely celebrated Kente cloth of the Ashanti and Ewe people are hand-woven and brightly coloured with traditional symbols and design.
African textiles have gained an international reputation for their patterns, but national branding had not been promoted heavily in the past. Promoting high quality, traditionally designed fabrics as “Made in Ghana” appeal to the niche USA markets that manufacturers are beginning to serve.

Textile companies to set up factories in Ghana to produce for the US market.
