Symbols in the After-Life
The Kuba believe that a high quality, correctly
patterned raffia dress is key to being recognized by clan ancestors in the land
of the dead, so families accumulate the cloths and pass them down through the
generations. This authentic ceremonial Kuba cloth is handmade from natural woven raffia, dyed naturally and adorned with flat-weave applique and are truly one-of-a-kind. Made in a patched applique design with cowry shells.
