Textile design is a true art form across Africa. Many designs are specific to a particular tribe or family.

The Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo partner their skills to create Kuba fabrics - the men hand weave strips of raffia cloth, using woven fibers from the raffia-palm leaves, then dye it with mud or natural substances from trees. Women embroider the geometric patterns by sewing it stitch by stitch, cutting each thread as they go.

This makes the process long, as each square takes days to complete, but the result is a striking patterned design with contrasting earth tones and a meaningful story.

Here's why we love it:

  • Cultural Significance
  • Handcrafted Excellence
  • Natural Materials
  • Unique Aesthetics

Dimensions: 22" x 32"
