The late, wonderful Monni Adams and Dorothy Washburn both wrote fine articles on Kuba (or Bakuba) raffia textiles. As an introduction, I recommend Adams’s “Kuba Embroidered Cloth,” African Arts 12: 1, 1978, pp. 24-39, 106-107.
Thank you. I failed to buy a catalogue, so wasn’t able to identify them. Charles
