Large Showa Cushion


  • Product Description

      Showa textiles from Democratic Republic of Congo

      The true jewels of textile art are the small Showa cloths. These raffia cut-pile cloths, woven by Kuba men, were embroidered by women with no stitching visible on the back.

      Highly prized for their complex interplay of geometric  patterns, inventive rhythm and balance, uniquely  individual designs , the Kuba people traded them as currency.
