This pillow is 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.
