Do you know there is a street called Palayakat Street in Malaysia that exclusively sells lungis made of Coromandel cotton from Tamil Nadu? The Coromandel cotton was superior in quality and designs of Kalamkari added more value to it. Even, the cotton cloth was a symbol of prestige among the nobles of Europe. However, this cotton completely vanished from the agriculture and weaving practices due to various reasons. Till today, Palaykat or Pazhaverkadu (Pulicat) is the tag given for the cotton by-products in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Singapore, Indonesia, Mexico, and Japan.
