    Hola Whatclos!

    No es costumbre indígena, pero costumbre hindú o de India.

    dhotis no sé, pero son saris y turbantes.

    ¡Que tengas feliz día!

    turban is turbante
    sari is sari (same word)
    dhoti...I would pronounce this toti (with the t's pronounced like in Castillian Spanish). Anyway, I'm not sure of a translation. In my experience, it's a single piece of cloth worn by men [in the Indian sub-continent] in a similar way to wearing a sarong.
