traditions in Bahrain

traditional dresses Smile

The typical Bahraini woman dresses conservatively, usually the daffah, a long loose-fitting black gown, is worn. However, there is no formal dress code in Bahrain, and foreigners as well as local women are seen wearing modern outfits as well.

Bahraini men usually wear the Thobe and the traditional headdress which includes the Keffiyeh, Ghutra and Agal.

The Thobe, sometimes called 'Dishdasha in the Emirates and Kuwait, is a loose, long-sleeved, ankle-length garment. Summer Thobes are white and made of cotton and winter Thobes can be darker and made of wool.
The Ghutra is a square scarf, made of cotton, and is folded in a triangle and worn over the Keffiyeh. In Bahrain, it is usually red and white checked or all white. There is no significance placed on which kind the man wears.
The Keffiyeh is a white knitted skull cap worn under the Ghutra. The Agal is a thick, double, black cord that is worn on the top of the Ghutra to hold it in place.
The Agal is a cord that is fastened around the Keffiyeh to hold it in place.
In some occasions, Bahrainis wear a Bisht, which is a cloak made of wool, over the thobe. Unlike the thobe, the Bisht is soft, and it is usually black, brown, or grey.
