In the month of Shrawan, Nepali women wear heena and bangles in their hands. We can also observe women wearing green potey in their neck.

We can observe similar type of fashion in every age group in Shrawan. There is also a religious belief that if a married woman wears green henna on her hands in the Shrawan, her husband's age will increase and if an unmarried woman wears it, her heart's desire will be fulfilled.

On the one hand, the religious and cultural significance of green bangles and henna is associated with the month of Shrawan, while on the other hand, it has become a fashion among the new generation.
