The lungi is a traditional garment worn around the waist in Indonesia,Bangladesh,India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore,the Horn of Africa and the southern Arabian Peninsula. It is particularly popular in regions where the heat and humidity create an unpleasant climate for trousers. The Lungi is also known as a sarong.
Unlike dhotis,which are linear like sheets, lungis are sewn into a tube shape like a skirt.They are especially worn in hot regions.Regardless of the design or color,lungis are often lined at the top and bottom with a black/white stripe containing reinforced weaving to prevent fraying.
Depending on local tradition, lungis can be worn by men and/or women.They are tied or fastened in various ways, and can be used in different cultural activities, ranging from normal daily life to elaborate wedding ceremonies.For daily purposes, a simple "double twist" knot is most popular, where two points in the upper edge of lungi are brought together and twisted around twice, with the ends tucked in at the waist.However,it is also common for wearers to simply tie a double "pretzel knot"from 2 points on the upper border,which produces a more secure knot.The lungi's length can also be adjusted, for example, by tucking in the lungi at the waist to make it resemble a short skirt.
