WHAT IS THE TRADITIONAL DRESS OF KERALA?

Updated on July 11, 2017

In Kerala, people from tulunadu region and Maldive Island would preferably wear MUNDU as the garment. Mundu is nothing but dhoti, sarong, and lungi. The clothes from Kerala will explain the unity and genetic life growth. Most Kerala people will wear and maintain white as the nation color. They wore all the traditional dresses in white color. They believe the royalty by wearing traditional dresses. They are significant in wearing white and golden bordered saree with the combination of colors like red, green etc.

KERALA WOMEN COSTUMES:
The traditional dress of Kerala is Mundum Neriyathum. It is just a two piece of cloth where they would wear around the hips and below the navel. They would highly use cotton clothes in all types of climate. In a festival of Onam, they all wore a set of sarees to show their unity. Along with the saree, they will wear the jewelers as the reasonable thought. The dress significance is overwhelming and has a kara in all borders. The Neriyathu is a dress where they would wear over the blouse and instead inside the mundu.

KERALA MEN COSTUME:
Kerala men would prefer mundu which is a long cloth, wear to tuck around the waist and it reaches the ankle. This type of dress will wear in all regions and types of malyalis in Kerala. They also wear shirts if they interested.

KERALA COMMUNITIES:
Many religions like Christians, Hindu and Muslims are all gathered and living as a family in Kerala. There is some kind of styles were all religions used to follow. During the marriage occasion, people from Kerala would wear saree along with their attractive jewels usually. They would like to wear KANCHEEPURAM silk sarees in that occasion. Recently, some religion, Muslims in Kerala have changed their traditional way by wearing Sherwani and Kurta. The bride will wear lehenga as the marriage dress. That kind of styles was very impressive in nature and would find the absolute tick in all aspects.

PAINTED KATHAKALI SAREES:
Kathakali has a long convention. It goes back to the seventeenth century. The Great author of Kerala Kala Mandalam, Mahakavi Vallathol Narayan Menon gave this dress its current shape and design. The performing artists depend on intensely available motion to pass on the story. These hand signals, known as mudra, are normal, all through quite a bit of a traditional Indian dance.We all would hear about Kathakali a Kerala dress in tradition. This type of dress will be very heavy and wise in length and breadth.

In the event that we take a gander at our benchmarks to check whether it is established, it has just scores humbly. It is certainly old, yet this is one of the slightest imperative of the criteria. It is not really something that high societies use to characterize their personality, for sure the inverse is likely valid. Its most glaring lack is found in its failure to rise above its connections to the Keralite people group. The normal Indian (non-Malayali) has just obscure information that it exists and will carry on with their whole existence without ever notwithstanding observing a Kathakali execution. In this way from a sociological point of view, it is most likely more right to call Kathakali "customary" rather than traditional.

The Kathakali dresses from Kerala were listed below:

1. Sathwika
2. Kathi
3. Minukku
4. Thatti

SATHWIKA:
Sathwika is a dress designed specifically for the males in Kathakali team. People will judge the hero and heroines using the style of the dress in Kathakali show. It is a huge dress and the hero will be ornaments like KESHABARAM, KUTTICHAMARAM, MARMARA, SANTHAM-PEACE, THOLPOOTTU, THODA, PARITHIKKAMINI, PATTUVAL etc.

KATHI:
This dress is worn by a villain of the episodes. It would be same as the hero, but a little difference of hero’s dress. The point of the episode is clear by the vision of villain among the people.

MINUKKU:
Minukku is the dress worn by the heroine of the episode. They will wear the dress along the ornaments like KESHABARAM, KUTTICHAMARAM, MARMALA, SANTHAM-PEACE, THOLPOOTTU, THODA, PARITHIKKAMINI, PATTUVAL etc.

White reflects the mirror image of the people. We believe white is a peaceful color. Kerala people will also maintain a peaceful and a greenish atmosphere in their state.
