lavalava avaIn many countries with hot and humid climate around the planet, men and women traditionally dress in simple rectangular wrap-around garments for comfort. There exist many different names for these “kilts”, like sarong, dhoti, pareo, saram, maʿwaz, futah, and so on, but probably the cutest word for this handy garment appeared in Polynesia – the locals call this skirt-like cloth “lava-lava”. The Oceanic peoples wear their lavalava with beach clothing, everyday outfits, business suits, and any other style of clothes.
