Billy & Louie
In celebration of Billy, Louie and Maya's African heritage, we are making limited edition Kente Cloth Neckerchiefs.
The Basenji is native to Africa, and predates most of the modern dog breeds you find today, originating from the time of the faraos.
We have chosen unique fabrics, in bright colors an fun patterns, in order to make one of a kind neckerchiefs.
The Kente Cloth Neckerschief is a limited line of Neckerchiefs made from Kente Cloth.
Kente, known as nwentom in Akan, is a type of silk and cotton fabric made of interwoven cloth strips made and native to the Akan ethnic group of Ghana.
We will have different selections of colors and patterns at any given time, as the cloths are limited. However, don`t despair - get in touch with us, as our supplier might have some more in storage.
Measure your dog's neck where the collar normally is worn to ensure the best fit.
The bananas allow for additional inches/cm to tie, and is perfect for those "in-between" sized dogs, or if your dog is still growing. Length is adjustable by rolling the neckerchief a few times before tying it on.
Made of interwoven cloth strips of silk and cotton, the Kente Cloth is an indigenous Ghanaian textile. Kente comes from the word kenten, which means basket in the Asante dialect of Akan. Akans refer to kente as nwentoma, meaning woven cloth.
Our Neckerchiefs are made out of "fat quarters" from dress production in both Ghana and the UK
The edges of the neckerchief is sewn with a colorful thread
To avoid the fabric from fringing, the neckerchief is cut with a zigzag scissor
