Longhi

My object is a longhi, a traditional pant that men in Bangladesh wear. It tells a story of my culture because men in Bangladesh wear longhis. I am from Bangladesh and it is worn because it's comfortable and easy to wear. My longhi was given to me by my favorite uncle back in Bangladesh. I have been wearing my longhi for more than 5 years. Even though I am in America, I still wear it in the house. When I wear it I feel pretty Bengali, but one thing that's different is that I would wear it outside in Bangladesh, but I won't wear it outside here. Ultimately, my object tells a story of my culture.

Place(s): Bangladesh and America
