Vintage Congolese Raffia Woven Kuba Cloth

Vintage Kuba Cloth - 2' x 2'7

Regular price $75.00 Sale

This Kuba cloth was crafted in the Congo during the 20th century.

It was woven of raffia palm fibers which were then applied using an appliqué technique. A brown grid design with circles and arrows has been applied over a wheat colored backdrop. There are a couple folk repairs with fragments of older Kuba cloth adding interest.

In very good condition, would look excellent on the wall.
