This cushion is made from a vintage Kuba cloth. Kuba cloth is made by the Kuba (Shoowa) people from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Kuba cloth is handwoven using the strands from raffia palm leaves. The raffia strands are dyed in a variety of earth tones using vegetable dyes. There are 2 finishes, either a flat weave finish or a cut pile (faux velvet). This lovely graphic cushion is cut pile. I have  edged it with a thick natural cotton fringe trim and it is backed with vintage hemp, dyed brown. It has a zip fastener and feather pad.
