Dhoti is a 4.5-meter long cloth worn by men all over India. It is mainly available in silk and cotton. It includes both the waist and the legs. Dhoti is of great importance in many Indian states. There are so many special dhotis for pure progress also.
In some regions, the dhotis silk is tucked up in five places on the waist. These five places are the symbols of the five cosmic elements, the whole earth, water, fire, finally air.
The dhoti is a standard garment to Indian subcontinental men and is worn around the lower part of the body.
