These workshops create publicity for the company as well as educate participants on the weaving and stamping of African textiles. Through patronage, participants acquire basic knowledge on kente weaving and color perception. At the end of the workshop, participants are equipped to either start their own textile business or practice it as a hobby. At Dento Mills, we impart our tradition and enhance others ………
