Custom kente is any variation from our over 100 in-stock kente designs.
Gold Coast Africa offers free design support, quick order turnaround, and fast, friendly service.
Custom kente pricing includes all handwoven lettering on each of the two sides of every stole:
Different lettering can be placed on opposite sides. The hand-weaving process creates block lettering. 6-8 weeks should be allowed for delivery of hand-woven custom stoles, however delivery times are often shorter. Rush import and delivery is available at $5 per stole extra charge.
If you need more lettering flexibility, we can embroider upon our authentic, hand-woven kente stoles. We use a custom-designed embroidery font with a unique stitch pattern which complements the hand-woven process of traditional kente weaving. Embroidery pricing can be quoted once we have your design information which can be emailed to us. Logos and special designs can either be embroidered or afixed with an embroidered patch.
Every order includes free design which culiminates in a drawign that will be used by the weavers to weave your kente stole. We offer lots of ideas from over 28 years of design and weaving experience to ensure your stoles are aesthetically pleasing. Please call our toll-free Kente Hotline: 888-281-2559 for custom kente inquiries or to discuss design possibilities.
