Boasting warm hues and striking patterns, Kuba cloth brings to mind the sunbaked landscapes of the African continent. Spotted on linens and home goods, you’ll find Kuba cloth in some of the most popular home décor stores.

Kuba cloth is woven from the strands of raffia palm leaves. The process of transforming the leaves into cloth is a time-consuming one: a single placemat, for example, can take up to several days! While many cultures traditionally consider textile-making to be a woman’s job, the Kuba people divide the process between men and women. Men are largely in charge of weaving while women are responsible for finishing each piece.
