!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!
Collectors of these Leo/Mattel India dolls should be told that the jewelry in the ears and foreheads can and has caused green ear and is ruining some of my prettiest dolls. If you have these dolls, I advise you to remove the earrings and any head jewelry immediately and store it separately away from the doll!!!!

I am using very generalized definitions of the Indian garments summarized from the FashionIndia website. For the best information and Indian clothing references, check out Fashion India's Glossary of Indian Fashion and India Tourism & Travel .

CHOLI: A tight-fitting short, bodice-like blouse.

GHAGHRA: A flared skirt, made up of several triangular gored pieces stitched together.

KURTA: A collarless or mandarin collar tunic, slightly loose-fitting garment for outer wear, often with a round neck, of knee-length or even longer, with side-slits at the hem and generally flared skirt.

LUNGI: A skirt like garment, made from a long straight cloth. Originally worn by men, today it is worn by men and women. Simply put, it is a short length of material worn around the thighs like a sarong.

LEHANGA: A skirt. Worn generally in combination with an odhani.

ODHANI/ORHNI or DUPATTA: A wrapping veil/cloth, worn tucked in at the waist and wrapped around the back and over the head, the free end being draped over the shoulder.

SALWAR-KAMEEZ: Salwars are pyjama-like trousers drawn tightly in at the waist and the ankles. Over the salwars, women wear a long and loose tunic known as a kameez.

SARI: A single length of material, rectangular and five to six yards in length. The style, color and texture of this cloth varies. Can be worn in several ways and its manner of wearing as well as its color and texture are indicative of the status, age, occupation, region and religion of the wearer.
