Kuba

This collection of handmade vessels built mainly in black stoneware clay was inspired by the rich geometric patterns and earthy colours of traditional African textiles such as mud cloth and Kuba cloth. Kuba cloth is traditionally woven from raffia by the men folk for tribal ceremonies, especially weddings. The woven raffia is dyed and decorated by the women folk who transform the straw coloured fabric with natural dyes and applique geometric patterns and traditional symbols. The resulting fabric is stunning and highly sought after.
