St. Frank Classic Kuba Cloth Tray

This tray is created by woodwork artisans in the Philippines with our Kuba Cloth fabric by the yard, inspired by of one of our vintage kuba cloth textiles. Kuba cloth is a unique textile featuring complex designs that are created when various geometric raffia pieces are stitched to a plain raffia background. The resulting rough surface is punctuated by repeated geometric patterns with unexpected interruptions in design. Men cultivate the raffia palm and weave the raffia cloth; women then create the patterned textiles. Traditionally, Kuba cloth was used as a wrapped skirt worn during burials. Later, it was incorporated in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations.

16" L x 12" W x 2" H

Finished with Metal Gold Handles
