Kuba Cloth is a stunning upholstery cloth when used in the right way. As seen above, African Trading posted this incredible chair upholstered with hand appliquéd Kuba cloth fabric in a neutral yet bold black and ivory tribal pattern.
Kuba Cloth is made from raffia, so it's durable and relatively easy to care for. After creating your masterpiece, you could spray a protectant onto the cloth if you want to protect the color from fading. Be sure to test a small sample of your Kuba cloth first. Photo credit @Tierradellagarto.
@Librastudio used small Kuba cloth pieces to create highly textural and rich looking pillows! This particular type of Kuba cloth is a bit prickly due to the shirred raffia, but it's worth it!
