Description

Mundu, an integral part of Kerala Culture

The Mundu, a garment worn around the waist in Kerala, is white or cream in colour and generally woven in cotton. Today, two types of mundu are widely used — the single and the double. While a single mundu is draped once around the waist, the double is folded in half before draping. A mundu normally has Kara, a comparatively thicker cloth woven into it near the border. For ceremonial occasions such as weddings, a mundu with a golden embroidery known as kasavu is often used.

Wash care instructions: Dry wash, don’t dry in direct hot sun.

FAQ:

  1. What is Kasavu made of?

The kasavu or the golden border is either pure golden layer or copper coated. The fabric of mundu-sari is cotton and is always woven by hand

  1. How should I wear a mundu?

Here are three simple steps to wear a mundu

  • Hold a mundu open with both hands.
  • Take the end on the right-hand side and put it to your waistline. Repeat with the end on your left-hand side.
  • Make sure the kara falls in such a way that the lining is visible till your torso.
  1. Do women also wear mundu?

Yes, women often use a variant called a mundum-neriyathum. It is a set of two mundus, both having matching kara. The set contains a lower garment which resembles those worn by men. The upper mundu, worn with a blouse, is wrapped once around the waist and upper body and left hanging from the left shoulder. This is often called a set-mundu and is usually worn during festivals or special occasions
