Handwoven Mudcloth Pillow | Mudcloth Bolster Pillow Cover | Made by Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Our Handwoven Mudcloth Pillow features Kuba cloth - handwoven by the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire). Each Kuba cloth pillow cover is a unique work of art. The Kuba artisans hand-weave strips of raffia from the raffia palm leaves to drape around themselves at celebrations. The raffia is dyed by women with natural plant substances and woven by men. Each square takes a couple of days to complete and the designs have various meanings.
Our Kuba cloth pillow covers are one of a kind and will vary in size, pattern and color. No two are the same. Artistically crafted in Tanzania by women artisans who use traditional African textiles to create modern-day decor.
Measures 20 x 20 inches.
