    Ah! I’ve wanted to get myself a mekhla chadar for sometime now- Apart from the Kerala ‘Mumdum Neriyathum’ which is a 2 piece saree(if you can call it that), the Mekhla chadar is the only other quasi saree that is worn in 2 pieces, to my knowledge.

    I would love to gift one to my mother. But doesn’t chadar mean bed sheet, although also says that its a body wear.
