Kandura is the long white cloak that male UAE Nationals (emaratis) wear. It is often called dishdash by the expats. I've noticed that during winter season, grays and browns come out, there are pale yellows and dirty whites too. A typical kandura would cost around AED 150 to 250 ( USD 40 to 67) to get tailored.
Sometimes, I wonder what is it like wearing that long white cloak, especially during the summer months with the temperature can soar high up to 50 degree celsius. It must be steaming hot. Hmmm, maybe I should ask my husband to try one of these days hahahaha. What do you think?
Picture shown above was taken in one of the tailoring shops in Khalifa Street. Thanks to the tailor and his assistant. Will post about the guthra and egal anytime this week.
Word of the day : buni or buwny is the arabic word for brown. Salaam to all!
