Large Showa Cushion
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.
