Yes, it’s definitely what you’ve been waiting for… Another installment in the Summer of MAJOR New Era Cap series. Majors “Kente” was first leaked into the blogsphere several weeks ago and now you finally get a chance to own one. Kente cloth is a type of woven fabric made and worn by Ashanti people of Ghana. According to history, it was said to be royal and sacred cloth, only to be worn at times of great importance. In the mid ’90s, Georgetown Hoyas basketball team, featuring the great Allen Iverson, introduced the world to the kente pattern, when it appeared in the Hoyas uniform.
As a symbol of great importance in African culture, as well as a symbol of one of the most feared and dominating basketball traditions, Kente has a special meaning, and Major did their own adaptation in vibrant summer colors, including Shock Orange/New Era Blue/Ebony & White. There will be no phone orders taken on Saturday, June 21st, but there will be reserved quantities for everyone across the world to get their hands on this important fitted release. In conjunction to this post we wanted to let all our readers now that MAJOR was recently honored by NIKE with a “super exclusive” tee shirt in a size run of 8 tees. The front of thesee hot tee’s boast “Major Knows” with the Nike Air logo underneath. The bad news they aren’t for sale. The good news the Kente is all yours this saturday.
