These cushions are 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). These graphic cushions are a mix of both cut pile and flatweave with a good even pattern. They are backed with a heavy brown linen and have zip fasteners and feather pads.
