Matchbox is made from printed paper and filled with approximately 120 3.75" safety matches.

Box dimensions: 4.25" W x 4.25" H x 1" D.

This matchbox is printed with a replica of one of our vintage kuba cloth textiles. Kuba cloth is a unique textile featuring complex designs that are created when various geometric raffia pieces are stitched to a plain raffia background. The resulting rough surface 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 incorporated in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations.
