Abstract: Dhoti or the waistcloth of men is a scanty piece of cloth fastened round the waist, its ends being carried tightly between the two legs to the back and tucked. The dhoti or the lungi worn casually or as a daily wear gained its popularity when woven with a contrast border using traditional motifs. One among such traditionally produced made-ups is the contrast-bordered lungi, locally famous as Ambasi phadiki dhadi panje woven at the village, Lakkundi. The off-white lungi has contrast borders on either sides with rudraksha and chrysanthemum motifs and was woven on the throw shuttle pit loom during 1916 and even before. Weaving process of the same that gave rise to various contrast bordered made-ups is discussed here under.
