Hand-crafted crossbody purse, made from authentic African Kuba cloth. Each purse is unique, in earth tones and traditional patterns, with a long cross-body strap. The large shoulder bag is approximately 12″ x 13″ x 1″. Made to order, so shipping times may be 2-3 weeks.
Using the leaf of the raffia tree, the Kuba people first hand cut and then weave the strips of leaf to make the pieces of the fabric, also called raffia cloth. The patterns on each piece of cloth have individual significance in Kuba society.
