Bir Sabaa بئر السبع – Bedouin Brights

Regular price $170.00

The southern desert town of Bir Sabaa is sometimes referred to as a Bedouin city since it owes so much of its character to the nomadic and semi-nomadic Arab tribes who live across the Naqab Desert. Historically, the Bedouin raised livestock and would roam with their herds throughout the year.

An elaborate qabbeh was a less critical part of the Bedouin thoub because the women usually wore veils that covered their faces and often the front of their dresses. Drawing on a simple design, this blouse uses a traditional geometric pattern known as the “moons and necklaces” motif and is stitched with bright yellows and reds – we chose a subtle, but distinctive yellow thread. The butterfly cut makes for a loose, flowing garment, appropriate for women of the desert.
