| "Bring Back the Kaupina! "|
That's what I say to the fashion designers. You might think it is crass, but
it's the perfect attire for the beach -- and you will discover in this article
on Kaupina, that people in India have been wearing it to work, temple, and
of course, to the beach, for a long time. It's almost disappeared now.
Kaupina is a piece of cloth run between the legs to cover the private areas.
Other cultures (especially the Japanese) might have similar clothing, but what
makes kaupina fashionable is the the throw of the kaupina which
can be rolled, braided, twisted, or just flown about. See how cool kaupina
can be, from a painting depicting Shiva.
