pah nung (ผ้านุ่ง)

Thai. To wear a cloth as a lower garment. Name for a traditional sarong-like garment for both women and men, especially in the past. It consists of a piece of cloth wrapped once around the body and tied in a knot in the vicinity of the navel. It can be left dangling, but as a rule the front end of the cloth is brought up and fold between the legs to the back, where it is stuck behind the belt and thus creating a pair of shorts (fig.). In Myanmar, a similar long sarong-like garment is known as longyi (fig.). See also kaupina.
