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.
