Woven from the fib of the Raphia Vinifera palm, the Kuba cloth/textile originates from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and is believed to be one of the hardest and time consuming pieces of textile to manufacture. Home to the Kuba/Bakuba people, this tribe is well known in Africa for creating some of the most beautiful and intricate handmade pieces of textile.
The Kuba textile is all handmade and involves the participation of family members within a tribe. The multiple stage process requires fibers from the Raphia Vinifera to be soaked, beaten and stitched together by hand, a process that is time consuming and usually involves men, women and children within the tribe.
