Often referred to as the Velvet Kuba Cloth for its velvety appearance, this beautiful pillow is rich in texture and tradition yet full of contemporary sophistication.
Cut pile is embroidered onto a flat-weave cloth to form what is referred to as the most extravagant of the Kuba cloths.  The earthy tones and materials that comprise these beautiful textiles and pillow cases illuminate any room, and will surprise you by their versatility.
