| Kuba Cloth Pillows |
| Kuba Pillow Cover |
Similar to our JuJu hat, our Kuba pillow covers are 100% handmade using only the top 25% hand selected and sourced raw materials from the DRC. Each pillow case requires fibers from the Raphia Vinifera to be soaked, beaten and stitched together by hand. A process that is time consuming taking up to 7 days on average per kuba pillow cover.
Geometric precision and color distinction are two common elements seen in most kuba cloth pillows. Due to its uniqueness and highly prized value, Kuba cloths were once used as currency and clothing only worn by distinguished members within a tribe or family.
