Double-Pick Double-Weave
The most elaborate and expensive Kente cloth is made by a process of double-pick, double-weave. By this process coloured yarns can be hidden between the two warps so that the two sides of the cloth are identical. The intricacy of the weaving can be seen in this close-up view. This type of cloth cannot be produced on a broadloom. The so-called 'broadloom Kente' employs only the simplest patterns.
