African Tribal Handmade Kuba Cloth Textile Runner
Kuba cloth hand woven in the Democratic Republic of the Congo of raffia palm leaf strands that are then woven into fabric. Geometric symbols are then appliquéd onto the surface, each symbol having a meaning. One of a few decorative fabrics that is entirely sewn from the front rather than the backside. Once used as currency, as part of a dowry payment and in special ceremonies, these pieces were often a sign of wealth. The more complex and intricate the pattern of symbols and color the more valuable the cloth. A one of kind piece of artwork since each piece is unique to the artist. Can be framed, used as a wall hanging, at the foot of a bed or for pillows.
