Kente Gold

Kente Cloth Originating from Ghana, Kente cloth is characterized by its intricate woven patterns and bright colors. It is often worn on special occasions and holds great cultural significance among the Akan people. 

Bhairav’s Kente Gold Print refers to a style of Kente cloth that incorporates gold-coloured patterns or motifs into the fabric. Gold is a symbol of wealth, prestige, and royalty in many African cultures, including those of the Akan people of Ghana, who are known for their production of Kente cloth. Incorporating gold-coloured prints into Kente fabric adds to its aesthetic appeal and often enhances its ceremonial or celebratory significance. The gold print can be achieved through various techniques, including metallic colours weaving, gold foil stamping, or gold-coloured ink printing on the fabric. These techniques create shimmering and eye-catching patterns that complement the vibrant colors typically found in Kente cloth.

Ombre Kente Gold

Ombre Kente Gold likely refers to a style of Kente cloth that combines the traditional weaving techniques of Kente with an ombre effect, incorporating shades of gold or transitioning from one shade to another. Ombre refers to a gradual transition of color from light to dark or vice versa, creating a gradient or fading effect. In the context of Kente fabric, Bhairav has incorporated an ombre effect that can add depth and dimension to the intricate patterns and designs. The use of gold in the ombre effect further enhances the fabric’s luxurious and celebratory feel, as gold is often associated with wealth, prestige, and ceremonial occasions in many African cultures. Creating an ombre effect in Kente cloth can be achieved through various dyeing techniques, such as dip-dyeing or hand-painting, where the colors gradually blend into one another along the length or width of the fabric. This technique requires skill and precision to achieve a smooth and seamless transition between the colors. Here in Bhairav we have seamlessly achieved the same.

By breathing new life into traditional African prints, they can cater to the evolving tastes and preferences of younger consumers who are looking for unique and fashion-forward clothing options.
