About La Petite Congolaise

British born of Congolese descent, Laurence Kanza is the founder of La Petite Congolaise. Translated as ‘The little Congolese girl’, the label reflects a fresh modern face of the Congo.

Born from a love of fashion, interiors and wax prints, La Petite Congolaise offers a contemporary twist on accent colours for the home.

Inspired by the craftsmanship and detail characteristic of Congolese design, the ranges combine a unique aesthetic as sensuous earth tones and eye-popping brights are captured on handmade limited edition cushions.

The premise of the line is simple – to create stylish pieces that reflect the personality of the owner.
