    Story Behind the Art:
    Deborah Osei Boakye says, 'I became interested in weaving at a tender age. My grandfather, Opanyin Kwame Kwarteng, of blessed memory, taught me earnestly. I became a weaver because I wanted to continue the family craft. Through kente cloth, I can express my appreciation of how the Ashanti culture and Western culture have found a point of integration.'
