About Saudi Abaya
Whether you want to respect your own heritage, or embrace the fashion of another culture, the Saudi abaya is a popular choice. Abayas are simple, dress-like robes that fall over the body with clean lines. Many abayas are simple, with little decoration. The sheer utility of the garment, especially with the hot weather of the Middle East, cannot be overstated. Black abayas color much of the West's perception of Middle Eastern wear, and they continue to be popular choices throughout the world. Some abayas are more brightly decorated. Butterfly abayas, for example, are often festooned with intricate and colorful patterns that evoke natural imagery and the rich and intoxicating heritage of the east. Men's and women's abayas often differ greatly in design, but both often feature naturalistic designs, such as flowers and birds. Many are embroidered with gold thread, giving the wearer a sense of royalty not commonly found in mainstream American wear. You can find plenty of Saudi abayas by browsing the large inventory available on eBay.
