Hameedia launched the world’s first linen sarongs, which have a selvedge, giving a new lease of life to the traditional sarong.

Considered by many as comfort couture, the sarong, after capturing Hameedia’s interests was transfor-med into a world-class statement of fashion following a year-long trial.

A leading menswear designer in Sri Lanka, Fouzul Hameed, MD, Hameedia says, “These sarongs are unique since the entire fabric is woven into a sarong, which means there are neither joints nor hems. Yes, this is the world’s first sarong, which is born out of our abiding passion for creating latest trends for the sartorially savvy gentleman. Our sarongs are a combination of ease and elegance.”

The sarongs featured in the new  Hameedia collection exude sophisti-cation and simplicity. As the sarongs are pre-washed, this offers extra comfort and come in clean-cut and refined elegant designs. The linen sarongs are available in 30 colours ranging from deeper hues to pastel shades.
