An obvious example is the traditional costume of women in Haryana, called Daman Kurti Chunder. Chunder is a long piece of cloth, available in a wide spectrum of colours . These wonderfully coloured Chunder, is tatted with shimmering laces. This Chunder is draped around the head and the front part of the body.
