LA liputa or the pagne


The Congolese style stands out from the crowd, using beautiful clothing with vibrant hues and striking prints, reflecting African culture. 


The traditional Congolese dress is centered on the liputa (which means "pagne"in Lingala), a unisex fabric with a variety of designs worn by men and women across the nation. 


Le pagne is made from one piece of woven fabric, leather, feather or plant material generally braided and rectangular, fitted around the hips and down to the thighs (pagne short) or ankles (pagne long). 

"Any clever juggles silence and words."
