What is Abaya / Jubah

Abaya / Jubah are known by various names but serve the same purpose, which is to cover. Contemporary models are usually caftans, cut from light, flowing fabrics like crepe, georgette, and chiffon. Styles differ from region to region: some abaya or jubah have embroidery on black material while others are brightly coloured and have different forms of artwork across them.
