Medium Vintage Kuba Cloth




ex. VAT


A vintage woven Kuba cloth. Approx 145cm long x 55cm wide. The Kuba people from the Congo produce this wonderful cloth by weaving fine palm fibres coloured with natural vegetable dyes. Often decorated with embroidery, patchwork, tufts and applique, they can be up to 10m long and are worn by both men and women at ceremonies including celebrations and funerals. This is a nice old example and has a very small amount of wear and tear which is typical for a cloth of this age and size. It does not detract from its beauty - a good vintage example.
