Kuba cloth -Graphically distinctive and richly evocative of central Africa, Kuba cloth is hand-woven using the strands from raffia palm leaves. The raffia strands are dyed in a variety of earth tones using vegetable dyes.  There are two main types of Kuba cloth: cut pile cloths and flat-woven cloths with no pile.  Kuba cloths display a variety of interesting features including patchwork, embroidery, appliqué and embellishments.
