Emirati National Dress

Emirati National Dress
The Arab national dress is a symbol of pride and identity that has been designed with the dual intent of providing comfort and adhering to religious beliefs. Men wear an ankle-length, loose-fitting garment made of white cotton, known as a kandora or dishdasha. A ghutra covers the head and is held in place by the agal, a black cord. Women wear an abaya―a long, black flowing light coat over their clothing. This is worn over their western clothes or a traditional long-sleeved full-length dress known as a jalabeya. A black scarf called a shayla is draped over the head.
