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. 

Framed dimensions are 16.5" W x 16.5" H.

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.
