Where to buy Indian Lungi Pants

I am looking to get a couple of Indian lungi's. These are just a couple of yards of cloth, usually sewn into a tube. I am looking for traditional, hand-loomed madras weave cotton fabric like you see in South India.

There must be some stores in GTA that carry this kind of stuff?

Can U ask why you want those? My dad wore them his whole life around the house and honestly it's not a flattering look. Other then letting your boys swing free, I don't see the attraction. Just get some loose pajamas.

Plus I could never tie the knowtright and stop them from riding down.

They are for an ethnic food and costume night we have annually. I am torn between a dhoti and a lungi for this purpose. I am thinking I could also wear them around the house and as a wrap at the beach instead of a beach towel. I was in India a few years back and I liked the way you can just flip or double up a lungi to pee or squat on their toilets without getting dirty. Fashion note: do not wear with running shoes or a shirt with a clashing Madras colour pattern! Not a flattering look, as you say. My price point is under $20.

Lungi. No one needs to see your upper thighs.
