Kediyu is an outfit worn by men for the performance of Garba and Dandiya Raas. The kediyu is a short frock-type kurta that is embroidered with intricate designs through zardozi. The embroidery often showcases geometric, wavy, and humanoid motifs. In addition, the kediyu can be decorated with elaborate mirror work and tassels.
The kediyu is worn above a pair of chorno, which are pants that look like stitched dhotis. The chorno can either have strings that tie around the waist or elastic. The kediyu fits snugly around the chest and flares out from the waist and hips, which adds a special element to the dancing.
The kediyu is traditionally made of cotton because the physical activity involved in the dance makes the wearer sweat. Moreover, cotton is a cool and absorbent textile that helps keep the torso and limbs cool. The kediyu can be worn in various colors and embellishments, but it is usually kept simple to let the intricate designs of the shirt shine.
