Robe

The brilliant blue and gold colours of this finely woven aba reflect the sky and sun of Syria. Worn by upper-class men, the simple unstructured shape and generous length make it versatile and suitable for the hot climate, while covering the body in accordance with local tradition. Look at the gold-braid trim and stylized flowers below the nape.
