About sarongs

What is a sarong?

According to Wikipedia:

A sarong or sarung (pronounced [ˈsaɾoŋ] in Malay; English: /səˈrɒŋ/) is a large tube or length of fabric, often wrapped around the waist and worn as a kilt by men and as a skirt by women throughout much of South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, the Horn of Africa, Europe and on many Pacific islands. The fabric most often has woven plaid or checkered patterns, or may be brightly colored by means of batik or ikatdyeing. Many modern sarongs also have printed designs, often depicting animals or plants.

I love sarongs because of I am a fabric nut – and I love being able to buy a sarong and having a beautiful, finished length of fabric to do projects with. I can wear it or use it to decorate my house and my toddler loves to use it for imaginative play, too.

I work for my parents in their family-run business that imports sarongs and will occasionally point to my favorites on this site, but the intention of this blog is not to sell or advertise – it is to celebrate the awesome sarong and showcase the neat ways they can be worn and used. Island life
