Thoranam are traditional coconut or mango leaf garlands from Tamil Nadu, hung in welcome or to mark auspicious occasions. Indigo-dyed cotton with a woodblock-printed leaf design, created using a traditional dyeing method using river clay, minerals and gum - known as 'dabu' - as a smooth 'mud' paste to resist the dye. A generous sleeveless sundress with scoop neck and full, tiered skirt. The bodice is bias-cut and has some natural stretch.
