Lapa Cloth

Lapa Cloth: Lapa Cloth (from West Africa) is the brightly patterned, cotton cloth that may be wrapped around body like a Masai shuka, or around the waist. It is similar to the kanga (Swahili) in East Africa and the sarong (Malaysian) in Asia.
She was wearing a lapa skirt and a white t-shirt, with a matching lapa cloth wrapping her baby around her back.
