Pagne is type of raw cloth (in all kinds of patters) that can be made into clothes or used for basically anything else. I’ve seen it be made into pants, dresses, curtains, towels, and cleaning cloths.

It can be bought in pretty much any market and the prices vary depending on the quality of the material and how much of it you want.

Other volunteers say that Léo has the best pagne and so far I have about 6 pagne in different patters (including one with money trees on it) and am in the process of having things made. I plan to get a few tunics, some dresses, a skirt, and a button down shirt made before I leave Léo.
