Pagne Lifestyle is excited to be open at Concept 31/M! Pagne Lifestyle produces fun and functional designs for home and life from African wax print fabrics known as “pagne” in West and Central Africa. Our product range includes homewares; bags & totes; clothing; aprons; furniture and more!
Pagne Lifestyle’s roots are based in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where Founder and CEO Elizabeth Jaffee first fell in love with pagne during her previous career with the State Department’s Foreign Service. After years of designing products for herself, friends and family, Pagne Lifestyle was established to bring the joy of pagne to a broader audience. Pagne Lifestyle designs and produces beautifully handcrafted pagne products while also supporting improved livelihoods, skills development and economic opportunities for our producers in the DRC and the United States.
In addition to our Congolese partners, we are proud to support Washington, DC-area refugee women through our partnership with the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)’s Stitch-Ed Together project.
