In the past, kuba textiles inspired artists like Klimt, Klee, Picasso and Matisse for its legendary collages. Today, two young designers rediscover them and reinvent them as the protagonists of projects for the world of fashion and interior design. Their names are Stephanie and Alice, with two important traditions tying them together: that of the ancestral and thousand-year old artisanal tradition of the Congo and that of the experience and expert workmanship of Made in Italy. The result is extraordinary like the line of handmade bags: geometric patterns, natural colours, and ethno-chic allure.
