Kuba Textiles come from the Congo. Kuba cloth panels are handwoven using the leaves of the Raffia Palm tree.
The Kuba Shoowa panels are embroidered in various designs in some areas while thick pile that resembles velvet is sewn into cloth and trimmed by snipping fibers; nicknamed Kasai Velvet. Kuba cloths are highly collectible and come in endless one of a kind patterns.
Black-brown and natural raffia color.
***please note that some Kuba Cloth with black palm fibers retains the faint smell of smoke. This is from scorching the palm fibers to a dark black when originally woven.
