African Kuba Cloth
Made from Raffia, the Kuba cloth/textile originates from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and is believed to be one of the hardest and time consuming pieces of textile to make. Home to the Kuba/Bakuba people, this tribe is well known in Africa for creating some of the most beautiful and intricate handmade fabrics from Raffia Vinifera or Bamboo palm.
Completely in love with the design and pattern work of this cloth and works perfect as a runner.

Would recommend this store to anyone looking for great products and quality customer service.
The Kuba textile is all handmade and involves the participation of family members within a tribe. Each cloth requires fibers from the Raphia Vinifera to be soaked, beaten and stitched together by hand. A process that is time consuming and usually involves women only.
Geometric precision and color distinction are two common elements seen in most kuba cloths. Due to its uniqueness and highly prized value, Kuba cloths were once used as currency and clothing only worn by high members within a tribe or family.
