Men’s Scarf Shop


There are many small shops like this one here in Jeddah that sell men’s traditional clothing and accessories. These ghutras (all white) and shemaghs (red and white) come in various sizes and designs. The igal (black hoop) worn on top of the scarf is seen below at the bottom of the photo. I found this nice post that explains the various articles of traditional dress if you’d like to know more.

    It is funny how these “ghutras and shemaghs/shomaghs” cost as much as 7 British Pounds and are sold here for more than 150 Saudi Riyals and sometimes can go up to 400 SR for brand names like Dunnhil when its the same 7GBP price as manufactured and imported from (mostly) England.

    and it is a shame that the most common clothing for men here are never produced in Saudi Arabia.

    The clothing, of course, is different, but the presentation is similar to American men’s shop a generation or 2 ago.
