    A Kente stole is a traditional African cloth that is worn as a sash or scarf during graduation ceremonies by students of African descent. It is made from brightly colored woven fabric and is considered a symbol of pride in African heritage and cultural identity.

    Kente stoles are typically made of handwoven cloth, each with its own unique pattern and meaning. The different colors and designs used in a Kente stole can represent different values, such as wisdom, strength, prosperity, and creativity.

    In graduation ceremonies, the Kente stole is often worn over the academic gown to add a cultural touch to the traditional attire. The use of the Kente stole has become a popular tradition among African American students as a way to celebrate their cultural heritage and recognize their academic achievements.

    What is the material of your stoles? Washing Instructions?

    Our stoles are all made of 100% polyester. Purely made polyester, like our products, is extremely strong, extremely durable and has excellent properties such as being hydrophobic in nature that leads to quick-drying and stain resistance.

    They cannot be made in another fabric except for our v-neck stoles that can be made in matte fabric as well.

    We recommend dry cleaning for all of our products in order to keep the integrity of the garment. However, our products can be washed in a machine using the gentle cycle or handwashed. For drying, please hang dry. The material can be ironed on a low setting.
