Can We All Just Get A'longyi?

October 30, 2020

“The Longyi is a traditional piece of clothing worn by men and women for everyday life in Myanmar. Even in the modern day capital of Yangon, you will see most people wearing a Longyi, whether it is in the office or doing normal daily activities. It’s very much a part of the national identity. 

This fabric (red-green-black) is a traditional Longyi style from the western-most state of Myanmar, named Chin.  The Chin people dress mostly in green-red-black stripes.

In the market, I met a Chin seamstress and we talked for hours, definitely one of the highlights of my trip.

The fabric is sold in pieces cut for a sarong, so we had to buy many pieces, not just by the roll. It was fun hunting around the market for fabrics that were all the same design.” - Traveler Aaron John

 

Here’s to getting a’longyi with people from all different walks of life & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!
