This is a town in Kwabre well known for the traditional Kente cloth weaving. Although there are a variety of oral histories concerning the origins of Kente Cloth, historians and scholars agree that its production is an extension of centuries of strip-weaving in West Africa.

Strip-weaving has existed in West Africa since the 11th century. Most scholars believe that the art form was developed in present-day Mali and spread throughout West Africa through trade and migration.
