The Kuba cloth originated from the Kuba kingdom in the 17th century which is today the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It was traditionally worn as a symbol of status by royalty and for ceremonial events. It is a fabric that is usually associated with affluence and prestige, despite it being affordable in its own respect. Genuinely historic and rich in cultural background, it is a prestigious work of art and makes for beautiful adornment.
The making of Kuba cloth is a time-consuming and collaborative process because great effort is put into its detailing and crafting. There are a wide variety of techniques to make the fabric including geometric applique, velvet embroidery, resist-dyeing, and patchwork.
The Kuba cloth can be used for a wide range of products. Its unique and very cultural look makes it very attractive to the eyes, and also gives it a traditional African feel of pure royalty.
