Onam Laydies Special: The Quint Shows You How to Tie ‘Settu-Mundu’
Laydies, up your SWAG this onam with ‘Settu Mundu’
(This video is from The Quint’s archives and was first published on 2 September 2017 to mark Onam celebrations. We’re bringing it back this year to get you off to a festive start!)
Traditional clothes have always been fashionable across India. And some items from the Indian wardrobe have even attained cult status. The 'Mundum Neriyathum' is one such item.
It is to the Malayali woman what the Mundu is to a Malayali man. Its simplicity, elegance, and ease of wear allows one to interpret it as per one’s sensibility – from bling to subtle beige.
What's Onam if not an excuse to don the Mundum Neriyathum, right? And gorge on the Sadhya, while trying to say 'Puzha'?
Check out The Quint's take on the 'Mundu-Settu' or the Kerala saree. It's authentic, and seriously funny.
