The Diversity of Sarong 2

Other Uses

Authentic sarongs don’t come cheap because each piece is painstakingly hand-painted and each design is unique. Sometimes the designs speak of a story – this is especially true of those reflecting native color – whereas some designs are from the brilliant imaginations of the cloth painters.

Their beauty is such that you might come across houses that use the sarong as a wall hanging or a centerpiece on a long table. Sarongs are also sturdy enough to be used as a hammock or swing for babies and toddlers. Sometimes, too, you will see Asian mothers using it as a sling on which to carry their babies, especially when they’re out working on the rice fields.

Some of the most popular and sought-after sarongs come from Bali. The Balinese designs are really intricate and colorful. Usually, they are made of rayon fabric – thus their cool and comfortable texture.

The sarong can easily be the most versatile piece of clothing in your wardrobe. Depending on the season and your mood, you can use it as a skirt, tube top, scarf, shawl/wrap, or whatever else you can think of. It’s especially useful when you’re traveling and need flexible clothing for any occasion that may come up.

For more information on sarongs and where to find the best ones, you can search the Web. You’ll be surprised how many sarong aficionados are out there. Even better, you’ll discover the online apparel stores that sell genuine sarong from Bali for unbelievably low prices.
