What does "a loincloth" mean in terms of a woven loincloth?

Open tab

The Faso Dan Fani woven loincloth is sold in the form of strips of dimensions varying between 180 cm x 30 cm and 180 cm x 40 cm, the loom and the manual nature of the weaving of the loincloth making larger widths difficult to make. To have the equivalent of a loincloth, you need 3 strips for widths of 40 cm or 4 strips for widths of 30 cm.

To wear the loincloth as it is, you have to arrange the 4 strips and make a hem or fringes according to personal preference. An assembled loincloth measures approximately 120 cm x 180 cm.

When you plan to have an outfit sewn for you, your seamstress will be able to work directly with the strips and arrange the cut-out patterns as needed.

Bogolan loincloths are sold assembled by individual loincloth.

A bogolan loincloth measures approximately 1.20 mx 1.70 m.

Sénoufos loincloths are sold assembled by individual loincloth.

A loincloth is made up of 8 individually woven strips, each measuring approximately 14 cm x 180 cm.

A Senoufo loincloth measures approximately 1.10m x 1.80m.

Can a loincloth and a half sew a set?

Open tab

Yes, generally a loincloth and a half is enough to sew a lady's outfit (short-sleeved top and long straight skirt) for a person of average build.
However, for a very corpulent person, we rather recommend two loincloths for the making of a lady set in Faso Dan Fani loincloth.

For men's tunics with pants, you usually need two loincloths.

It is also possible to mix your Faso Dan Fani loincloth with other types of fabrics to make an outfit or an accessory. The most frequently used fabrics are satin, lace, basin, and cotton fabric.

Is it cotton?

Open tab

Yes, our Faso Dan Fani loincloths are made of 100% cotton in Burkina Faso.
Some loincloths contain metallic polyester threads to give them a shiny appearance.

Does it rub off?

Open tab

Faso Dan Fani loincloths do not bleed. Before weaving, the weavers dye the yarn, which is basically white, and stabilize the color to prevent it from bleeding.
For other types of loincloth such as bogolans, koko dunda, baoulé loincloth, senoufos loincloth, these loincloths can rub off and it is advisable to wash them separately.

How should I maintain my loincloth?

Open tab

We recommend washing the loincloths by hand in cold water with natural soap (Marseille soap). The use of detergent should be avoided in order to maintain the shine of your loincloth longer.

Dry your loincloth out of direct sunlight to preserve its colors over time.
You can also use dry cleaning for your woven loincloth outfits.
