WHAT IS A LUNGI?
The lungi is a garment worn around the waist in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & yanmar (formerly Burma). While its origin is found in South Indian culture, it is orn by diverse communities across Southern Asia. It is normally woven from cottonin a variety of designs and colors, though the most popular styles are either olid-colored or plaid.Lungis also comes in two types: Open Lungi, which is basically piece of cloth wrapped around, and Closed or Stitched Lungi, which is stitched to form a sort of a ‘tube’.
In Tamil Nadu, only the men wear this garment, and the usage is similar to Kerala’s. It is also known as Kaili or Saaram/Charam in South Tamilnadu. In Kerala the lungi, locally known as Kaili or Kalli Mundu, is worn by both men and women. It is considered a casual dress or working dress of physical labourers.
Coloured lungi is called Munda in central Karnataka. Plain white double folded cloth similar to lungi is called a panche. Panche as opposed to lungi is worn during formal ceremonies. These are also used in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
