Swahili Modern

TZF15C_R1

  • Handmade in the Congo, bold kuba cloth is crafted from natural raffia fiber that has been dyed and hand-appliquéd into geometric designs. The kuba cloth has a beautifully textural appearance from the loose weave of the raffia and the visible stitches of the hand-appliqué process. The seamstresses at Marvelous Batik in Tanzania create beautiful decorative pillows from this uniquely African textile.

    This pillow includes a high quality pillow insert, side zipper, and is backed with dark cotton. 

    Limited edition, only two available. Measures 22"L x 15"T.

  • 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.
