For many Kuba textiles are amongst the most appealing African textiles. They are raffia cut-pile cloths, very often artistically embroidered and further enriched with tight tufting that somehow reminds of -raffia- velvet. They show a great variety of designs mainly geometrical. Used by men as skirts they were symbols of status and, as such, highly esteemed.
