The length of an African loincloth

The pagne, called by the French word le pagne in French-speaking West Africa, is a fabric measuring approximately 59 inches by 98 inches (150 cm by 250 cm). In its main use, it is wrapped around the hips and rolled on itself at the waist to form a skirt. Worn throughout West and Central Africa, it belongs to that large category of garments that are not sewn but wrapped around the body. Other famous names are the sarong, kain, kanga, sari, shuka and toga. Although traditionally made from strips or hand-woven fabrics, wrappers can also be made from hand-dyed or factory-printed cotton, as well as silk and rayon. Please note that you must choose the length of all the fabrics we sell at AfricanFabs yourself. This means that if you need the size of a loincloth, for example, you can order 3 yards of fabric. You would then receive 3 times 91 cm. So a piece of 273 cm x 115cm. ( Sometimes the width is 120cm instead of 115cm, depending on the fabric brand. You can read the width in the text of each production).
