Kabinda Bow Tie

artisan made | 100% wax printed cotton | self-tie | adjustable length 14.5" - 20"

 

The Kabinda bow tie is named after the capital of Kabinda District in Kasai-Oriental Province. During the Second Congo War (1998 - 2003) the city was destroyed by fighting between Congolese and Rwandan forces on their way to secure the diamond mines of Mbjui-Mayi. Today, the crystals of Kabinda are mined almost entirely by the hands of Congolese men.
