Abstract: Developing and exploring new ideas or modus operandi for the production of Ghanaian textiles is paramount in this age and time. There is a growing trend towards industrialising Adinkra cloth production to meet market demand. This study discusses contemporary trends of design, printing technique, base fabric and printing paste in Adinkra Cloth Production. It employs a developmental study of descriptive research to consider the existing status and interrelationships of phenomena and changes that has taken place since the creation of the tradition and art of Adinkra cloth production. The study establishes the dichotomy between indigenous and technology-driven production of Adinkra cloth in the 21st century. It brings to the fore the attraction of tourism potentials to the various Adinkra production communities in Ghana. Also, the study provides the understanding of contemporary production of Adinkra and recommends newer approaches for its production.
