I just found this site selling a variety of different chador styles…by chador I don’t mean the traditional kind which is a huge semi-circle, but all the other varieties of overhead overgarment which are in general, called “Chador”. in Iran..like “Arabi chador” is actually the Khaleeji style batwing overhead, etc etc.
Ii love how the little girls model everything too.
This style is called the Lebanese style-Chador. No clue if thats really a Lebanese style…but thats its nickname.
Batwing abaya with cuffs (aka. the modern batwing)
same as the “modern” style batwing.
Emirate-style chador. (aka, the overhead wrap ‘n snap)
This one is sooo cute…I wonder what shes reaching for Its called “aba’ ‘arabi” (aka…arabic abaya)
A kiddie version of the chador-e arabi,,,made to be appealing to little girls!
Again, I dont recall really seeing any of these styles “ready-made” in shops, but I do know they are/were popular to bring back from Hajj, Omrah and Ziyarat…so I guess these are made from those ones brought back.
NE way, and check out this cute prayer outfit, I actually JUST made one from a Saudi shershaf (huge rectangle used for salaat)…its really comfy and covers all.
Some asked..the pics are from”hijabroom.ir” its a site all in Farsi. Also due to sanctions its difficult to order items from Iran.
