A collectors item, the shoulder yoke of this red striped kurta is made with strips of appliqué. This appliqué is an intricate combination of orange, dull red strips & circus stripes with multi hued bands and circus striped flags. This particular appliquéing has drawn inspiration from the Mukhathezhuthu or the intricate face-painting technique that Theyyam artists apply before a performance. A ritual in itself, the Mukhathezhuthu varies from Theyyam to Theyyam. Kumkumum is Malayalam for Vermilion.
