The content shared with you today is the characteristic of Arab clothing. What fabric clothing does the Arabs wear? Just like normal clothes, all kinds of fabrics are available, but the price is naturally very different. There are factories in China that specialize in processing Arab robes, and the products are exported to the Arab world, which makes a lot of money. Let’s take a look together.
In Arab countries, people’s attire can be said to be relatively simple. Men are mostly dressed in white robes and women are wrapped in black robes. Especially in countries with strict Islamic regulations such as Saudi Arabia, the streets are everywhere. It is a world of men, white and black women.
People might think that the white robes worn by Arab men are all the same. In fact, their robes are different, and most countries have their own specific styles and sizes. Taking the men’s gown commonly called “Gondola”, there are no less than a dozen styles in total, such as Saudi, Sudan, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, etc., as well as Moroccan, Afghanistan suits and more. This is mainly based on the body shape and preferences of the people in their respective countries. For example, Sudanese are generally tall and obese, so the Sudanese Arabic robes are extremely loose and fat. There is also a Sudanese white trousers that is like putting two large cotton pockets. Stitched together, I am afraid that it is more than enough for Japanese yokozuna-level sumo wrestlers to wear it.
As for the black robes worn by Arab women, their styles are even more uncountable. Like men's robes, countries have their own unique styles and sizes. Among them, Saudi Arabia is the most conservative. Together with the necessary accessories such as turban, scarf, veil, etc., it can cover the whole person tightly after wearing it. Although Arab women who are born to love beauty are restricted by Islamic regulations, they are not allowed to show their jade bodies at will, and they are not suitable to wear bright coats, but no one can stop them from embroidering black dark flowers or bright bright flowers on their black robes (this depends on It depends on national conditions), and they can't stop them from wearing beautiful dresses in black robes.
At first, we thought that this black female robe called "Abaya" was simple and easy to make, and it was definitely not too expensive. But after interacting with experts, I realized that due to the different fabrics, decorations, workmanship, packaging, etc., the price difference is very big, far beyond our imagination. In Dubai, the commercial city of the United Arab Emirates, I have visited high-end women’s clothing stores several times. I saw that the black women’s gowns there are really expensive, each of which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars! However, in regular Arab shops, White robe and black robe cannot be in the same shop.
Arabs have been wearing Arab robes since they were young, and this seems to be a part of traditional Arab education. Young children also wear small white or black robes, but they don’t have a lot of scenery, so you can’t help but look at them. Especially when Arab families are out on holidays, there will always be groups of children running around in black and white robes, which give the holiday a bright spot because of their unique clothing. Nowadays, with the continuous development of society, more and more young Arabs are keen on suits, leather shoes and casual clothes. Can this be understood as a challenge to tradition? However, one thing is certain. In the wardrobe of Arabs, there will always be a few Arab robes that they have passed down through the ages.
Arabs like to wear long robes. Not only do people in Gulf countries stay in robes, but they also love them in other Arab regions. At first glance, the Arabian robe seems to be the same and the same in appearance, but in fact it is more exquisite.
There is no distinction between robes and inferior ranks. They are worn by ordinary people and also worn by high-ranking government officials when attending banquets. In Oman, gowns and knives must be worn on formal occasions. It can be said that the robe has become an out-and-out Arab national costume.
The robe is called differently in different countries. For example, Egypt calls it "Jerabiya", and some Gulf countries call it "Dishidahi". Not only are there differences in names, but robes are also different in style and function. The Sudanese robe has no collar, the bust is cylindrical, and there are pockets on the front and back, as if two large cotton pockets are stitched together. Even Japanese sumo wrestlers can get in. The Saudi robes are high-necked and long. The sleeves are inlaid with linings on the inside; Egyptian-style robes are dominated by low collars, which are relatively simple and practical. The most worth mentioning is the Omani robe. This style has a 30 cm long rope ear hanging from the chest near the collar, and a small opening at the bottom of the ear, like a calyx. It is a place dedicated to storing spices or spraying perfume, which shows the beauty of Omani men.
Due to work, I have met many Arab friends. When my neighbor saw that I was always asking about robes, he took the initiative to introduce that many Egyptian robes are from China. I didn't believe it at first, but when I went to a few big shops, I found that some of the robes actually had the words "Made in China" written on them. Neighbors said that Chinese goods are very popular in Egypt, and "Made in China" has become a local fashionable symbol. Especially during the New Year, some young people even have more "Made in China" trademarks on their clothes.
When I first received a robe from an Arab many years ago, I tried it in the room for a long time, but I didn't know how to wear it. Finally, he went straight in with his head and put the robe on his body from top to bottom. After putting on the self-portrait in the mirror, it really has an Arab taste. I learned later that although my dressing method has no rules, it is not too outrageous. Egyptians don’t wear robes as meticulously as Japanese kimonos. There are rows of buttons on the collar and sleeves of the robes. You only need to untie these buttons when you put them on and take them off. You can even put your feet into the robe first and wear it from below. Arabs are overweight and wear straight robes that are as thick as the upper and lower sides, which can quite cover the body shape. Our traditional impression of Arabs is that the man is plain white with a headscarf, and the woman is in a black robe with a covered face. This is indeed a more classic Arab costume. The man’s white robe is called "Gundura", "Dish Dash", and "Gilban" in Arabic. These names are different names in different countries, and are essentially the same thing, the Gulf The first word commonly used in countries, Iraq and Syria use
