Kuba Raffia Embroideries - 2

           from the collection of Marla Mallett
 

HOME

More raffia cloth embroideries made by Shoowa and Boutala Kuba people in the Republic of the Congo. Velvety cut-loop pile forms the majority of the designs; flat stitching is used between pile areas for contrast and detail in most pieces.   Most of the pieces on these pages are thought to be 40 to 60 years old.

For additional raffia cloths, go to Kuba Raffia Mats - 1.  For other African pieces, go to African Textiles. For textiles from other parts of the world, see our
