About This Item

While Shoowa mats are traditionally carried by elders in baKuba villages to use as a sitting mat, the natural colors, intricate patterns, and abundance of texture make these textiles a versatile interior design element. Explore ways to display Shoowa Mats on our Pinterest board: Kuba Shoowa Mats

The mats are made from natural raffia palm leaf; the leaves are split and fibers are soaked and beaten to soften them, then they are twisted back together for strength. They are woven using a technique which creates a cut-pile velvet similar to carpet, creating a wonderful, fuzzy texture.
