Currently, the abaya is a clothing that is being favored by women, especially Muslim women. Apart from being able to cover genitals well, abaya also has a variety of attractive color and design variants so that they are suitable for various activities. Abaya or kaftan abaya is also defined as a robe costume like long sleeves and is a traditional form of dress for the location of many of the Arabian peninsulas including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
Abayas are thought to have emerged since the 7th century AD, in the time of the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia. At that time women use clothes that show genitalia such as the neck and even the chest. Then when Islam ordered Muslims to cover their genitals to avoid dishonorable acts, a collection of abayas appeared.
At first, the abaya was dominated by black, but in its development, Abaya has a variant color. Eastern Muslims like Asia, love the colorful abayas with various applications and access. Likewise Saudi, Kuwait and Qatar, although the use of black abayas in these three countries, still dominates. While embroidered abayas are increasingly popular in Jordan, Western countries have even expanded to several countries in the Middle East. Even today abayas come in a variety of types and designs, and different styles and colors are preferred by women.
Towards the holy month of Ramadan this year, a lot of Muslim clothing stores various abaya collections with beautiful colors and attractive designs. Made from quality materials and a sweet embroidery application that makes you appear more elegant, comfortable, and confident.
Nowadays, even though Muslim women’s clothing still cover almost their entire body, the materials of their clothing are usually very comfortable. Furthermore, they are usually designed to adapt to the climate and temperature of a certain country. As an example, if you buy an abaya in Saudi Arabia, the abaya is usually made of materials that are capable of resisting some of the heat in that region, as well as absorbing your sweat properly.
