SHOWA CUSHION HANDMADE CLOTH

$299.50

SKU: 20028978
This 60 cm cushion is covered with a small Showa cloth - the true jewel of the textile art. Showa textiles from the Democratic Republic of Congo are raffia cut-pile cloths, woven by Kuba men & embroidered by women with no stitching visible on the back.
Highly prized for their complex interplay of geometric patterns, inventive rythm & balance, uniquely individual designs, the Kuba people traded them as currency.
