Stripweave is a textile technique in which large numbers of thin strips of cloth are sewn together to produce a finished fabric. Most stripweave is produced in West Africa from handwoven fabric, of which the example best known internationally is the kente cloth of Ghana.
Cotton, silk, and rayon are the usual fibers for stripweave garment production. Traditionally these were hand spun, although machine spun synthetics are coming into increasing use. Wool is also in use for stripweave blankets by the Fulani people in Mali.
