New clothes are integral to Onam festivities. Elders gift 'onakkodi' or 'onappudava' ('kodi' means new and 'pudava' means cloth in Malayalam) to younger members in the family. Mundu and saree, the traditional wears of men and women of Kerala, are the usual gifts. Infants and kids are presented 'chittada' or small dresses which may be a small 'mundu'.
