Kuba Cloth

Kuba cloth is woven from the fiber of the Raphia Vinifera Palm. Production of these textiles is a multiple stage process which involves the participation of children, men and women of the same tribe. The process includes gathering and preparing the raffia fibers for weaving and embroidery, weaving the basic cloth unit, dyeing the embroidery fibers, and embellishing the woven cloth with embroidery, applique, patchwork and dye. Embroidered cloth units are individually conceptualised and the patterns, have been named and passed through generations.
