Kalire are umbrella shaped hangings which are worn by brides on their wedding day. They are covered with gorgeous silver or gold embellished ornaments.
The kalire are attached to the brides chooda (traditional wedding bangles the bride wears on the day). The umbrella-shaped hangings are a unique combination with the chooda which signifies happiness for the newlyweds and eternal love between the couple.
The brides sisters and friends tie the kalire to her chooda. The significance is to provide good luck to the bride and to remind her of her family and friends whom she is going to leave behind when she gets married.
