We do not recommend laundering textiles, and do not accept returns of textiles which have been laundered in any manner.  Even dry cleaning is too much for some of these antique textiles.  For some of them, a very gentle HAND washing  (NEVER MACHINE, on any setting)  in cool water with a very gentle detergent works, but even then, dyes may not be colorfast, and fabric may be less strong than it appears.

Additional Information: The Ewe people, who live in Ghana and Togo, have textiles similar to the kente of their neighboring Ashante, but they are woven of cotton, and are generally more muted. They are called "Keta" because they were originally produced in a coastal town of that name. See AFRICAN TEXTILES by Christopher Spring, and AFRICAN MAJESTY-THE TEXTILE ART OF THE ASHANTE AND EWE, by Adler and Barnard.
