Each cushion is truely unique in design. Kuba cloth is made in the Democratic Republic of Congo where men use ancient techniques to hand weave raffia fibers on single-heddle looms, they then soften the rough cloth, calledmbal, by pounding it in mortars. Kuba women hand stitch the appliqués, following their inspiration as the labyrinthine designs take shape. 

Given the unique nature of the cloth, each cushion has a slightly different size - see below for size options

Lightfoot products are the result of dedicated Zambian craftsmen and women who use their skill and passion to create distinctive designs. Inspired by the natural beauty of the Africa bush and making use of ethically sourced raw materials. Read more here

Very gently rub the cloth to check for any color change etc. Once this is done you may proceed with gentle hand washing or soaking in cool water.  Lay flat to dry. If you need to iron the fabric use a pressing cloth and work from the back side.
