Velours du Kasaï (Kasaï velvet) is a kind of textile fabric made in Kasai, a province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Zaïre). Traditionally, the weaving is done by men of the Shoowa from the Kuba ethnic group, while the embroidery is reserved to women. Ideally, the embroiderers should be pregnant. The fabric is a prestige item traditionally used as ceremonial clothing and for exchange, especially as part of a marriage contract.

Please note: seller guarantees this velvet authenticity.
