KUBA CLOTH PILLOWS
Behind the scenes look at how we craft and construct our Kuba pillow covers. Kuba cloth is a traditional patterned textile made from the raffia tree by the Bakuba people of Congo. They dye the raffia leaves using mud or liquid from the camwood tree and then rub the fabrics by hand, so they’re soft and more manageable to weave. They proceed to stitch the cloth by pulling raffia fibers through it. It is an extremely time-consuming and a delicate craft.
Close-up look on what a JuJu hat is and its construction. A Juju hat or Tyn hat is a tribal headdress predominantly found in Cameroon and used by the Bamileke tribe in royal ceremonies and traditional dances. The hat, considered a symbol of prosperity is adorned with feathers in a circular pattern creating a layering or stacking effect of shorter feathers in the cored and longer ones in the outer perimeter.
