This colorful fabric by the yard is our interpretation of traditional African raffia applique. Unique to the Congo (formerly Zaire) traditional kuba is a detailed abstract art form, widely studied for its complexities. For centuries, these geometric African patterns have influenced artists from Matisse to Picasso.
Our version has been simplified into a repeat and treated with an evocative wash reminiscent of water color. Our heavy cotton linen blend makes a great upholstery fabric. Or, use for pillows, table linens or bedding.
Each pattern is a SmithHönig designer fabric exclusive. Order this colorful fabric by the yard online for the easiest home decor project ever! Sold in one yard increments. Coordinates with our Bakuba Lodge Peel and Stick Wallpaper and Pillows.
