Kuba textile art is originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and is well known for its design. These textiles are woven with palm leaf fiber Raffia Vinifera. For that reason, it is often called raffia cloth. They are rectangular or square pieces with a geometric design made in embroidery or stitches and then cut to create velvet-like surfaces. There are four techniques to produce Kuba textiles: embroidery, appliques, patchwork, and dyeing.

Men weave and dye the base fabric, while women are responsible for embroidering and joining the pieces to create the finished product. That is good teamwork.
