Vintage Handwoven Camel and Brown African Tribal Textile Fragment

$175

About

Vintage handwoven camel and brown African tribal textile fragment. Boho-chic style. The word “Kuba” means “lighting” referring to the blades that were once used by Kuba warriors. These Tactile textiles from the Congo are each handcrafted in the traditional way, the men weaving on a small hand loom and the women taking great pride in their embroidering of these squares. Kuba ceremonial squares can take three months to complete. A technique known as "cut pile" in which the ends of the raffia embroidery threads are cut very short and close to the surface, produces a soft texture similar to velvet. They are used as body wrappers, mats, blankets or used as currency.” Ideal for a pillow. Size: 11" H x 20.5" L.
