My Remarkable Trip to Kuwait: Part 9

Abaya

Today I want to talk about what people in Kuwait wear because it is probably not what you are expecting. But first I want to tell you something that you probably already know; people not just Kuwait, but also in many other countries have a different way of dressing, and again it is probably not what you expect.

In Kuwait men usually wear a white cotton dress called a dishdasha. The men wear head gear to protect their heads from the sun and the sand; it is like a thin scarf and then a kind of halo-looking thing holding it in place. Men usually wear sandals on their feet. Women in Kuwait mostly wear a black dress called abaya that goes down to their feet, and they wear scarves (called a hijab) around their head to cover their hair. Some women wear a mask-type cloth that covers all of their face except their eyes. The children in Kuwait probably dress how you do (the same way that most children in the U.S. dress): just with a t-shirt and a pair of pants or shorts, and a sweater if the weather is chilly.

So this is how they dress in Kuwait! Thank you for reading, and I hope that now, if you were not already, you are informed of the way that the men and women in Kuwait dress. I hope that you check back soon for new posts.

  1. I’m glad to see you’re learning so much, Rosie, it’s always interesting to learn about other cultures. And don’t be afraid to ask the next question. For instance, here at home, we dress differently depending on what we’re doing. We dress “professionally” to go to work, we dress “nicely” to go out to dinner, we dress “comfortably” if we’re relaxing at home, and we dress in “Sunday Best” to go to church. Do they have different types of dress in Kuwait? I’ll be interested to hear.
    Kisses and Hugs 🙂
