Kente Brides: Pistis Ghana

Happy Friday!

If you have been following my blog for a while, you may already know that I am IN LOVE with Kente cloth! I am obsessed with its richness, beauty and vibrant colors.  It’s my favorite cloth ever! It’s also Ghana’s national cloth. It has such an opulent history and deep meaning in Ghanaian culture. See and read here.

Traditional Kente Dresses and Looks

A New Look

Pistis Ghana has given Kente cloth dresses a makeover for Ghanaian women especially for those traditional brides. These gowns are bedazzled and bejeweled, different from the Kente dresses Ghanaian women have worn in the past. However, what I love about Pistis is that even though its Kente gowns are modern they’re still very traditional and keep that prestige Kente pattern going throughout. The fit of the Pistis Ghana’s Kente gowns is amazing. They fit these ladies like a glove. Check out some of my favorite Pistis Gh gowns below.

I have a Pinterest board here dedicated to all things Kente cloth. I have listed the sources and photographers of the photos in this post but many of them I found through I Do Ghana. Below is Pistis Ghana’s official website and social media.

These dreses and gowns by Pistis Ghana are not just for brides and their traditional weddings. They can be worn to a wedding, for special events, birthdays, etc.

What do you think of these dresses? What’s you favorite look from this post? 

Please share below. It’s so hard for me to choose honestly. However, I am really feeling the bride’s outfit in the last photo (with the white off the shoulder top and bedazzled jeweled Kente skirt). It’s a different Kente look.

Thank you for reading 🙂

    I dreammmmmmmm of owning a Pistis gown! Knowing how much good quality kente cost, bedazzled kente will probably be a run for my money. But definitely worth it lol. I told my hubby that if he never knows what to buy me, kente will always do. Lol
    The bedazzled slit was probably my first intro to Pistis, always a fave. I do love the white and gold and the one above it. Really gotta love our culture man
