Onam is a festival celebrated by the people of Kerala in India. The festival is celebrated during the Malayam month of Chingam which is between August and September. It marks the commemoration of Vishnu’s - Vamana Avatar. Onam denotes festivity of food, color, and also attire. During Onam people follow a set dress code which, for men is Dhoti and Shirt. For Women it is Settu Mundu or Kerala Kasavu Saree. Women in Kerala traditionally wore a two pieced cloth known as Settu Mundu also known as the Mundum Neriyathum which has the grace and appeal of the golden borders contrasting with beautiful design and with plain off - white color, which symbolizes the true MalayaleeWoman.
