" The klambi, or jacket, worn by the women, is, if anything, larger than that worn by the men. The patterns are precisely the same, but the texture is finer. The Sarebas women wear another jacket dyed a ruddy brown with mangrove bark, with a square embroidery on the back, and a fringe of hawks' bells." (Brooke Low.)
" The jackets are ornamented with fringe." (St. John i. 29.) " The women's jackets among the Sakaran reach nearly to the knees, and are brown in colour; among the Balaus they are bright red, and reach to hips only; and among the Sarebas they are nut-brown, and reach to knees. The dresses of the Sarebas are the best embroidered, as they are cleverest in all needlework." (Leggatt.) "The dandong, or shawl, is worn slung over the shoulder." (Brooke Low.)
