African Vintage Kuba & Raffia Applique' Cloth Pillows

The African Kuba & Raffia Appliqué Cloth pillow fronts are made from embroidered, cut-pile, raffia cloth and appliqué from the Congo of western Zaire.  Both men and women wore various asymmetrical, geometric patterns as their dance skirts and for ceremonial purposes. The raffia threads were grown and prepared by local plant dyes, which produce shades of brown, rust, black and gold. The backs of the pillows are made from linen or hemp fabric. Because these textiles are vintage there may be slight imperfections of the cloth. We at Cloth and Goods feel that the imperfections only add to the charm and uniqueness.

Due to the vintage or one-of-a-kind nature of these textiles, the pillow selections are limited. We are continuously sourcing and replenishing our stock with similar vintage cloth. If there is anything you are interested in, but find it currently unavailable, please contact us about something comparable.
