The Coorg style of draping a sari involves tucking the pleats at the back
of the waist, instead of the front. The end of the sari is brought below
the left shoulder, and secured over the right shoulder in a firm knot.

This style suits Coorg women leading an active life while climbing up
and down slopes in their mountainous homeland in the Western Ghats
in the Indian State of Karnataka.

Mythological origin of Coorg sari:

Kavera Muni, a great sage, selected Brahmagiri in Coorg as a place
suitable for meditation and there prayed to Lord Bhahma for children.
Brahma gave him Lopamudra for a daughter. Lopamudra, also known
as Kaveri, married sage Agastya on the condition that her husband
should not stay away from her even for a moment. On one occasion,
sage Agastya put his wife in his kamandala (water pot) and went for a
bath. Enraged by the betrayal, Kaveri spilled out of the pot and flowed
away as a raging river. Agastya tried to stop her. But Kaveri washed
over Coorg women, pleading to stop her flight from their land, with
such force, that the pleats of their saris were swept from front to back.
