Women in Black at the Mall

In the middle of the food court at the Mall of Arabia, dozens of stands for local entrepreneurs have been constructed for them to sell their wares, like jewelry, clothing, and honey. 

Female shoppers here can be seen in their black abayas.  While black is not required and many women are now sporting colorful abayas, some Saudi women have yet to break with the cultural norm of wearing black.
