Sarongs: An Introduction, Tips on How to Wear Them and Take Care of Them
The name sarongs, which is the most commonly used name for this type of garment, traces its origin from Malaysia and Indonesia. The Malay word sarong means a sheath and that is exactly what the garment is. It is a cover. It is a length of cloth that may or may not be sewn together as a tube and is worn most commonly around the waist, by people of both genders. Even though we get the word sarong from the Malaysian region, similar garments have been popular all over the world for centuries. Wrapping a piece of cloth around the waist is the easiest method to cover ones body and not surprisingly, people all over the globe have been wearing sarongs for ages.
Western world might be familiar with the garments similar to sarongs that were worn by the ancient Greeks and Romans - called as Toga. Sarongs go by the name of Wizaar, Wazaar, Izaar, Futah etc in the Arabian countries. They could be both plain white or printed. It is a common garment for the fishermen of the region. In the Indian sub-continent sarongs are worn casually in the northern region while in the South and North East, they are also worn formally.
If worn formally in north India, they are usually white and are called dhotis. If worn informally, they are called lungis. In South India the plain white sarongs are called veshtis or mundus. In the South Indian state of Kerala the printed sarongs are called kailees. Sarongs are also common in Somalia and although the plain sarongs have been worn there since ancient times, the printed sarongs are a recent introduction to the region.
Of late, sarongs have become popular in the Western world. They are comfortable and easy to wear, look bright and colourful and are easy to maintain. Sarongs can be worn in a lot of ways. They could be wrapped around the waist. This compliments the beach clothes. Both men and women can adopt this style. Women can also wear sarongs as wrap-around skirts. They are figure hugging and feminine when worn thus and can go with shirts, t-shirts or blouses.
You could use sarongs instead of the bathing robe at home. Sarongs could be worn as toga too and you can tie or knot them over one shoulder for that really seductive look. You could get creative with sarongs and use them as scarves, turbans etc. The really decorative sarongs could even be used as a wall-hanging art.
To clean your sarongs, you just have to shake them a little as you put them into the washing machine, wash them on the delicate mode, with very little or no detergent. You can use a fabric softener. You may dry the sarongs in the dryer or take them out and let them dry on the clothesline but if dry then outside do not leave them out in the sun for too long. If you decide to iron the sarongs, make sure you set the iron heat according to the fabric of the sarong.
