Kuba long cloth panel. DR Congo | This special wrap, made from raffia, was worn outside, or on top of, the long dance dresses for added decoration and prestige. Made from raffia. They incorporate embroidered shapes and patterns, openwork, tie-dye, tightly tufted areas and border elements. Most are covered with geometric symbols; many are restrained, subtle and rhythmic designs using one technique; others create amazing quilt-like assemblages of old pieces of many forms.
