The Saudi thobe is a globally renowned men's Arabic dress, cherished for its symbolism of purity, piety, simplicity, and charisma. In contrast to the attire in neighboring Gulf nations, it is known for its slim fit, resembling a shirt with a two-button collar and a round neck.
This Saudi men's thobe features one chest pocket and two side pockets. This traditional attire holds official status as the preferred men's dress in Saudi Arabia, aligning with Islamic guidelines for modest dressing and fostering unity among Muslims.
Notably, it includes five distinctive pieces known as 'kalli' on either side of the pockets, adding to its cultural significance.
Recently, the Arabian thobe industry has gained increased attention among Muslims in Western countries. Two primary reasons drive this interest:
- A commitment to upholding Islamic principles.
- The desire to preserve the rich heritage associated with this iconic Arabic thobe.
