lungi definition and meaning

What is a "lungi"?

A lungi is a traditional garment that is commonly worn by men in South Asia, particularly in India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. It is a long piece of cloth, typically made of cotton or silk, that is wrapped around the waist and legs like a skirt, with one end tucked into the waistband to hold it in place. Lungis are lightweight and breathable, making them ideal for hot and humid climates. They are also versatile and can be worn in a variety of ways, from casual everyday wear to more formal occasions. In some parts of South Asia, lungis are also used as a makeshift towel or even as a bedsheet. Lungis are a symbol of cultural identity and heritage, and their popularity continues to endure throughout the region.
