zoba zoba

The Portuguese trader Nogueira ran a thriving commercial establishment in Kinshasa around the time of the Second World War. He was a regular visitor to Jan van Vlissingen in Helmond, bringing him orders and requests. Nogueira came up with the idea for a ‘zoba zoba’, or patchwork, in which several different patterns and foundations are combined and the central motif is emphasised by a ranking of the various elements.
