Coffee Figures Kuba Cloth Sublime Framed Print
Dimensions: 44.5" W x 44.5" H
This archival print is float-mounted on a natural linen, which provides a 1" border between the print and frame. The piece is offered in our lucite frame. The print itself is subtly blind embossed with our monogram in the bottom right hand corner. The frame is equipped with wire to be hung either vertically or horizontally.
Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.
Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.
Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

These framed prints are created from Kuba cloth, a unique form of textile consisting of various geometric raffia pieces stitched to a plain raffia background, creating complex designs. The result is a rough surface that 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 included in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations.
