Food and Costumes of Baghmara
Ornaments are not usually worn by the Garos. The common ones are earrings and strings of beads worn both by men and by women. The latter ornaments are of importance as they serve as guarantees of the safe journey of the soul to the other world, being presented to the spirit Nawang should he try to prevent the soul from going to the land of the dead.
Due to contact with people from outside it has greatly modified the dress of the Garos. Both women and men wear dark clothes, dark blue or black, and men may wear shorts instead of the traditional loincloth. Both female and male generally wear turbans. On celebrations, they wear all the family heirlooms including the fine clothes and ornaments for women and men.
