capulana sarong avaOne of the most traditional and common pieces of clothing in Mozambique is a sarong-style garment called “capulana”. It’s popular both among men and women, but females wear it more often because it’s comfy, pretty, and multi-functional. A capulana became the local folk attire of Mozambique centuries ago when it replaced traditional animal skins. Since then, it hasn’t lost its popularity. Today, capulanas have a more contemporary design and color palettes, but they’re still a significant part of Mozambican cultural heritage.
