The Kuba Pillow Cover has a tie and dye design with cowrie shells embedded. Each Kuba cloth is a unique work of art made by artisans in Congo. Has piping around the pillow and a hidden zipper in the back. Backing is 100% Tanzanian cotton.
The Kuba cloth is woven from raffia palm leaves. The men of the tribe traditionally are responsible for manufacture of the cloth, and the women the intricate decoration. The Kuba weave is a laborious task from start to finish and remarkably the design is not marked on the mat before weaving.
