Kerala Dhothi or Mundu is a popular garment worn around the waist by men in Kerala. Due to its simplicity, elegance and comfort, Kerala Dhothi is suitable for festivals, ceremonies or even for daily wear.
- Coloured white or cream, Dhothis are of two types – single and double.
- A single Mundu is wrapped only once around the waist while the double is folded half before wearing.
- It has a line of thicker cloth woven into it near the border called Kara which can be of any colour, but mostly it is golden.
- Men will fold the garment in half to resemble a short skirt while undertaking physical activities.
