Description of KUBA THROW

The Baobab Collective was created to provide a range of sustainably sourced and ethically crafted blankets and throws in an abundance of timeless designs. Crafted in South Africa, the 'My Africa' range pays homage to the African tribes and their culture, heritage and beliefs. The beautiful tribal prints will offer a uniquely wonderful aesthetic to your home decor while providing warmth and comfort for the whole family.  The range is hypoallergenic with no added toxins or chemicals, making it suitable for kids and pets.

Congo Kuba

This beautifully crafted throw is inspired by the elaborate and complex designs of the traditional Kuba cloth, unique to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Perpetuating the rich cultural traditions, the men grow the raa palms and then weave the leaves into the base fabric. The women then embroider surface decorations onto the fabric transforming it into various forms of textiles, such as ceremonial skirts, tribute clothes, headdresses, and basketry. At a point in Kuba history, aristocratic titles, up to and including that of the king of the Kuba Empire, ceased to be hereditary and were awarded based on merit. Fierce competition for these positions was one of the major forces behind the evolution of Kuba weaving arts. Today, the cloth that they produce had become a popular international design trend.
