The man wears a four-part ensemble, with an elaborate headdress that is associated with the Maratha belt of Maharasthra and the Deccan
The style of the shots seems similar to the one we have seen on the model of the Bhatia and Bhavnagri men. The woman wears a saree with a brocaded blouse.
Both wear Indian-style leather footwear, Jutis or Mojaris.
