Kuba cloth from the Congo, Africa makes a stylish addition to contemporary home decor. I've suggested placing kuba cloth on a table top or on a wall as textile art. Certainly this is the simplest way to incorporate kuba cloth into a space. But African kuba cloth is also easy to sew with, so why not make some designer pillow covers?

African kuba cloth is a global-style textile hand crafted from raffia fibers. Because of the hand-made quality and unique graphic patterns, kuba cloth makes for pattern mixing ease. Greenbody_greenhome displays two Kuba cloth pillows among a variety of kilim rugs for a relaxed, bohemian style space in the photo above.
I find that kuba cloth coordinates extremely well back to African indigo textiles. I do my best to offer affordable basic kuba cloth as well as a few more collectible pieces. The kuba cloth above is a blend of the two. It has a unique color washed base cloth of woven raffia with graphic appliqued and braided cording.
A space with modern decor is softened by draping the chrome chair with a vintage kuba cloth. The hand crafted texture found in kuba cloth easily warms a hard surface.
A kuba cloth made into a large lumbar pillow completes the world-class casual look for this lovely bed. Note the black and white mud cloth used as a bed scarf. Many similar patterns available in my Etsy shop.
