We really enjoyed seeing how this cloth was made. Our weaver guide was very helpful in explaining how the loons worked and answering all our questions. We appreciated being able to purchase items made from this cloth without high pressure sales.

I visited the village with a group and we were led round by a local guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the weaving and the looms and was very willing to answer any questions. We were able to watch the weavers in the large shed and they were happy to allow us to take photos. There was also the opportunity to buy some of the fabric strips at the end of the tour as well as chat with some of the weavers. Everyone we spoke to was extremely friendly.

We were two young families visiting Tafi Abuife (Abuipe) while driving through the Volta Region.

We arrived at the interpretation centre and then proceeded to the main kente weaving building as well as a few household spots that were weaving as well. Children are taught from a very young age how to weave and the adults can weave very quickly, which is fun to watch. The residents were very relaxed and pleasant (such is the reputation of the Ewe in general) and did not mind us passing through. We bought a few pieces, which with negotiation were very reasonably priced.

A rainstorm came, so we left after not too long, but it sounds like there is more to experience in the village.

As with nearby Tafi Atome, the whole experience was quite relaxed and inexpensive. From our discussions, it seems that the closing of the Akosombo bridge has scared off many potential tourists and so business is lighter than usual. However, it is definitely worth a visit!

We went for the weaving - my wife and mother-in-law are both accomplished weavers - and came away with a real feel for the people (and small piles of exceptional authentic Kente cloth - not the batik being passed off as Kente on-line). We started with a tour of the village, where many houses have permanent looms set up outside, and spent a long time talking with the master master-weaver. We ended up in the factory - a large single-room building with portable looms stretched down both long sides - which was largely empty on a Sunday morning, but we did watch a bit more weaving, while having single, double, and triple weaving explained to us (I think it boils down to one, two, or three shuttles simultaneously passing the thread back and forth, but it also has implications for the type of patterns they will weave). The guys in the factory were tremendously helpful in selecting compatible patterns, and advising on how much to buy and where to take the cloth to have our clothing made.

We had earlier chosen to see "just" the drumming and dancing performance. What could have been brief and ratty turned out to be nearly 45 minutes of intense drumming (three drums, with different drummers rotating in and out) and dancing. The performers were backed by a couple score of villagers who sang along with some of the dances. The quality of dancers was mixed - they aren't professionals after all - but the emotion and authenticity could not be questioned. We were separately drug out for mercifully brief stints on the dance floor, and the bystanders were merciful in their appraisal.

It was a village experience, and the children were absolutely mesmerized by my video screen, so they crowded around my chair, and they were incredibly adorable. You may never have seen such joy as when I video'ed them with the monitor turned that they could see themselves. We plan to return and do a homestay in the village, maybe get to try our hands at weaving. Highly recommended.
