Because of problems with past and future fading and worn or dirty areas, we have decided to not put these panels up for sale.
They are left here for educational and research purposes.

KUBA STYLE APPLIQUED SKIRT PANELS

KUBA , NGEENDE DANCE DRESS PANELS, DRC

These embroidered panels are older than our appliqued panels. The red ones, with finer strips of raffia, are soft like cotton or linen from repeated washing and handling. The color, however, is not stable. Most of these have lost some of the deep dark red they had originally. Exposure to light will fade them gradually more until they are almost gray. I have lightened and desaturated the photographs to be as accurate as I can be to their present state.. Note that the color is often uneven and somewhat faded and occasionally dirty. Remember that museums expose their textiles only rarely and under subdued light. They have not been blocked or stretched.

CARE: The cloth is not fragile and can be pinned onto a wall or panel for display, or framed like a work on paper. To eliminate wrinkles, the cloth can be misted with water, and then gently ironed on the back.

The individual pages have details to give a better idea of the cloth up close, as well as focusing on any condition problems
