    10. In this African legend two weavers discover a magical looking spider web in the jungle They find out it was made by spiders and ask the spider to teach them how to make it The men return to their village and create complete patterns of their own, adding color and made their patterns into what we now know as Kente cloth.

    11. A lovely book with amazingly vibrant colors with the legend of the Ashanti people and their weaving abilities intertwined.

    12. I was happy to find an example of non European folklore The illustrations are interesting they re in the style of the kente cloth which the story s about.
