Arabian Costumes

Arab culture has made many contributions to modern life. Our number system arose from it. The Arab world gave us coffee and it gave us yogurt. Today it's also at the epicenter of much political strife.

 

The first image of an Arab that often comes to mind is the traditional men's headdress, called a keffiyeh, worn with a long, flowing robe. This form of dress arose from the nomadic Bedouin tribes as protection from the harsh desert sun. The loose robe allows air to circulate around the body for cooling, and the headdress protects the head and neck from sunburn. In some areas the fabric of the headdress indicates the wearer's social status or clan affiliation.

 

Our collection of Arabian costumes lets you become a hero such as Lawrence of Arabia. Or a villain such as Osama bin Laden. A mythic figure such as a jinni (genie). A Sheikh of Araby from an old Rudolph Valentino silent movie.

 

Act out a tale from the Thousand and One Nights. Take your lady-love on a magic carpet ride to a whole new world. Or poke fun at terrorists. Just be glad you don't live in the desert in a tent made from smelly camel hide!
