    Just a tiny percentage of the traditional Arab clothing that is worn in parts of the beautiful Arabian Peninsula.

    Here you can see some Hejazi (Makkawi) clothing. I am sure that none of you have seen it before! Please watch the whole video if possible.

    ‫

    This is a typical Yemeni clothing but there are a lot of varieties depending on the region.

    Proud Emirati Bedouins: (I see a lot of insults thrown towards ordinary Bedouins like they ever hurt anyone. They are good, simple and extremely proud people). I wish people had more respect for them, including Arabs themselves.

    Correct me if i am wrong, Jeddah people are "modernizing" the kandoora by adding new elements and designs to it. Am i right?

    For me the simple Kandoora is more good looking than the ones with new additions and designs. Probably i am an old fashioned man that is why.
