This archival print is float-mounted on a natural linen, which provides a 1" border between the print and frame. The print itself is subtly blind embossed with our monogram in the bottom right hand corner. Framed Dimensions: 8.5" x 8.5".

This archival print is a replica of a vintage Kuba cloth, a unique textile featuring complex designs that are created when various geometric raffia pieces are stitched to a plain raffia background. The resulting rough surface is punctuated by repeated geometric patterns with unexpected interruptions in design. Men cultivate the raffia palm and weave the raffia cloth; women then create the patterned textiles. Traditionally, Kuba cloth was used as a wrapped skirt worn during burials. Later, it was incorporated in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations.
