It's easy to catch a Tro Tro from Kumasi making a stop in Ntonso for Adinkra stamping then head further along to Adanmowase to learn all you want to know about kente weaving. My guide Eric took his time answering all of my questions. It wasn't rushed and was a hands on experience if you want to try. Besides that... More

Let us say it straightforward: we absolutely dislike any tourist setup and any tourist tour. This one was really different and really good. The local that showed us around was really knowledgeable and very sympathetic. He could answer all our questions into anything regarding farming or traditions and he wood adapt his tour to any topic that we were interested... More

We came to what seemed like a sleepy little village, and found the visitors center empty. But after walking around a little the locals helped us getting in touch with a guide, who gave us an tour - learning about the history of kente, seeing the weaving process and also visiting their local cocoa plantation. We bought a large peice... More

We were brought to Adanmowase by our tour guide Comfort who we met courtesy of Charity at Four Villages Inn. It was one of our favorite stops during our 2 day tour of the Kumasi area. For a very reasonable price we had an informative and hands on tour of the Kente weaving process, its history and current significance to... More

During my visit to Kumasi a wanted to learn Kente. Seen a small production in Bonwire and although the brief visit to the production was quite interesting as a 1st impression and the friendly people, the pressure to drag us to the stores was quite uncomfortable. The visit to Adanmowase was perfect. Cosmos has shown us the whole process, we... More

I have always been fascinated with Kente cloth and Adanmowase did not disappoint. Our guide, Eric lead us through every step of the process that goes into making the cloth and also allowed us to try each step ourselves. By giving us a "hands on" experience, we had a better understanding of the time it takes to create one piece... More

In recent years, Bonwire, the more popular kente village down the road from Adanwomase, has become too hectic so this location upgraded its tourist services as an alternative. They have a guest centre and the guide will take you through all of the process of creating Kente cloth. You can also try you hand on a loom. We were there... More

It is for sure better than Bonwire, which is a tourist trap. I got a nice tour of the kente weavers. These people try their best.
