Bedouin women from the Naqab Desert had a different sort of thobe, a voluminous style with very dense embroidery.  The colour of the front panel indicated something of great importance- her marital status! Incorporating red embroidery for Bedouin women would signal to others that she was already married. Single women would embroider patterns in blue. The colours would change with her changing status - a widowed woman would incorporate shots of red to her dress to indicate remarriage.
