Using the leaf of the raffia tree, the Kuba people of the Congo first hand cut, and then weave the strips of leaf to make pieces of fabric, called raffia cloth. Each design is different and represents a different Kuba group. It takes an African craftsperson about one month to complete a small square of kuba cloth using a laborious technique that includes dying, detailed needlework, and clipping tufts. It is one of the best examples of the ancient African tradition of raffia cloth weaving. When Kuba cloth originated there were probably no patches used, but as the cloth is brittle it is quite likely that the patches were used to repair the frequent tears. Later each patch developed a meaning, many patterns are uniquely arranged to tell a story.
