Cambodian "Scarf"

What do these three pictures have in common? They all show Khmer people with a “groma” on their head. This piece of cloth is kind of like a scarf, it looks like a big tea towel to me. Its very multi purpose, here you see people using it to protect their head from the sun, dust and petrol fumes. It also gets tied around the waist, used for carrying babies and other things, can be used in the kitchen and the bathroom.
