Congo raffia is a ceremonial textile of the Kuba people of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Woven from dyed strips of fiber extracted from the raffia palm, congo raffia features bold appliqué geometric designs. To utilize smaller portions of the fabric left over from other projects, seamstresses in Kenya create these unique mini pillows. Complete with stuffing, they make beautiful additions to the couch, or can be styled as ring pillows for weddings.


Each pillow is completely unique. Sold singly.
