This pattern is used for traditional Kuchipudi dances. A long pleat in the centre with a border and a back katcham and also a side small fan makes this a typical Kuchipudi style.
Cross pleat costume
Cross pleats are used for both Bharathanatyam and Kuchipudi. This pattern is best suited for gents. A katcham at the back makes the difference between Kuchipudi and Bharathanatyam. This cross fan costume can be used for devotional characters like Muruga & Krishna.
