Looking for a type of abaya
Posted 31 July 2008 - 09:12 PM
I am looking for this type of abaya I saw on some sisters. Its very flowy and loose. They bought them from Egypt but I have also seen them worn by Algerian women, I think.
Does anyone know what the name is and where I can buy it besides the above mentioned site?

I have one black like that. It does not look like same material hehe, but... I am not using it, so... If you wanna do a trade? Hehe.
I dont remember what they are called in Algeria though... I think they call them jillbab... When I used to be there, people talked about them as "Iranian model"...

It's calles an isdal. I have 3 myself, a green, black and a dark purple one.
I love them. They are gorgeous
You can order them on the internet.
I've bought mine in Egypt. Many women/girls wear them.

What differs the algerian model, from the Isdaal, is that the algerian model kind of have a flap on the front... Makes it perfect for breastfeeding.
If anyone wants to see pics of what I mean, just send me a PM inshaAllah!

It is very comfortable. I would be interested in the same type just not black I will need one in a nice colour inshaAllah.

UmMohamed; I have one in brown that is too short for me; brand new very similar to the Egyptian style; you can have it for free if you like ukhti you may need to shorten it a little again but its very nice lightweight fabric and comes with an underscarf also mashaAllaah
