Vintage Kuba Textile - Medium (Dark Border)
One of our favorite vintage finds! Our collection of vintage Kuba textiles are hand-embroidered in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire). These textiles are traditionally and most commonly made with bold appliques, so we were very excited to find some embroidered pieces.
Where certain other cultures assign weaving entirely to women, among the Kuba people the labor of textile creation is divided between the sexes. Men are tasked with the weaving and dyeing of base cloth while women are responsible for embroidering and connecting pieces to create the finished product.
Perfect as a rug or a wall hanging, our Kuba textiles make a striking statement in any room. Each design is unique.
