- Clothes Made Locally
There are tailors in the district. In years gone by they used to travel from house to house to make clothes. They work at their homes now. Some of the tailors sell cloth and they are called merchant tailors. The types of cloth used are tweed and serge. The tailors implements are the sewing machine, needle, thimble, cupboard and a heavy iron. Most of the socks are knitted locally. After the death of a relative the people concerned wear black clothes for a term of six months.
