A Malayali (Keralite) woman wearing the Kasavu Mundu and Kasavu Neryathu, with her long, lustrous hair strung with a garland of jasmine, is the very picture of traditional elegance. Kasavu Mundu and Kasavu Neryathu are extremely delicate pure cotton handloomfabric, bordered with gleaming golden thread. The glossy golden borders are sometimes paired with contrasting bright colours. They are worn as traditional saris or used as dress material. The men wear the Mundu around the waist and the Neryathu around the shoulders.
