Mundu (Malayalyam: മുണ്ട്, Telugu: పంచె) is a garment worn around the waist in Kerala and Maldives. This garment is closely related to the Dhoti, Sarong, and Lungi. It is normally woven in cotton and coloured white or cream. The colour is dependent on whether the cotton is bleached or unbleached. A mundu is usually starched before use. 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. Lungis are generally colourful, and with varying designs.
