The Story

Mapapa’s (from Lingala "mapapa" litterally meaning flipflops) are dare craft slippers with a "rubber" sole, created in the DRC.

Our Mapapa's are special because they are handmade and we use the African Wax (loincloth) to give them a unique touch, blending tradition and modernity.

Indeed, our goal is to dust off the ancient image of our grandmothers loincloth as we know it by giving it a second wind, a utility other than the usual ethnic clothing.

We want to show, through our creations, that the Wax can be broken down into a variety of fashion accessories as well as current and fun objects: from a pair of sandal to handbags, bracelets, clutches, key holders...

With Mapapa's, we invite you to join this magnificent journey between traditional Congolese culture and today's fashion .
