Khanjar Shirt

Kalimah Brand offers really unique and lovely Middle Eastern themed items in their shop located on the lower level of the Red Sea Mall.   This top features the traditional curved dagger called khanjar which is well known in Saudi Arabia but actually originated in Oman.  I saw many men openly wearing these daggers hanging from their belts when I traveled down to Najran in southern Saudi Arabia. In other areas the khanjar would be worn for special ceremonies, like maybe weddings.
