One of a Kind 16" Cream Diamonds on Black Congo Raffia Pillow with Insert

Swahili Modern


  • Handcrafted in the Congo, this authentic kuba cloth pillow was created using natural raffia that has been dyed and free-hand embroidered. There is the only one of this particular pattern.

    The pillows include a high quality pillow insert and are backed with earth-colored cotton. No two pillows are the the same and each features designs based off traditional Congo garb.

  • Marvelous Batik is a workshop in Tanzania that betters the lives of at-risk young women by teaching them new skills, helping them to be self-sustaining, and providing basic necessities. Run by a compassionate woman named Flotea Masawe, the cooperative is nationally recognized for their production of batik and embroidered cotton textiles. Pillows, table runners, duvet covers, bags, and curtain panels are just a few of the items currently exported by this talented group of women.
