Visually dynamic and highly textured, this raffia textile expresses the irregular, geometric patterns typical of Kuba textile art. Created by an artisan of the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, this textile form is a wrapped skirt known as tcaka, made by patterning a long raffia textile with appliqué patches. The geometric designs are restrained and balanced yet inherently rhythmic - perfect as a striking wall hanging or table runner.
