Fabric Souq

Tailors and fabric shops do a good business in Jeddah. Many men have their thobes (long traditional dresses) custom made, and many women have one of a kind creations made for them to attend lavish weddings. This fabric shop in Al Balad carries fabrics more suitable for home wear, while others specialize in fabrics just for men's thobes and other carry fancy fabrics for women's gowns.

Hi Susie, I love your blog, your photos are so interesting! I especially love this one of all the colourful fabrics. Do many ordinary people sew or do craft in Saudi? Are there many shops which sell sewing equipment or art and craft equipment?
