These framed prints are created from Kuba cloth, a unique form of textile consisting of various geometric raffia pieces stitched to a plain raffia background, creating complex designs. The result is a rough surface that is punctuated by repeated geometric patterns with unexpected interruptions in design. Men cultivate the raffia palm and weave the raffia cloth; women then create the patterned textiles. Traditionally, Kuba cloth was used as a wrapped skirt worn during burials. Later it was included in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations.

This archival print is float-mounted on a natural linen, which provides a 1" border between the print and frame. The piece is offered in our lucite frame. The print itself is subtly blind embossed with our monogram in the bottom right hand corner. The frame is equipped with wire to be hung either vertically or horizontally.
