Help: Where can i buy a decent 3baya?

I’ve never bought a 3yaba before!

The one i have and i’ve been using for a 2 years now is my mothers. I stole it from her wardrobe and kept it 2 years ago. Before 2008 i  didn’t have to wear a 3baya for weddings since i didn’t wear 7ejab then and i had one 3bat ras i would use for 3aza…

Now the 3baya i stole is getting discoloured… something i didn’t know a 3baya could do… isn’t it supposed to be black and stay black?!

So i figured that i need several 3baya’s now… one for 3aza, one for weddings, one spare that i could use for different occasions, one very plain for 3omra and 7ajj… i want it to be on the shoulders and loose and i want it to be very elegant and classy and simple without a single piece of strass in sight… no strange colors or designs… so far i have seen horrible 3bayat that are nothing short of halaga eb9ara7a!!! and paying 200+ KD for a good 3baya is not something i am willing to do… eshda3wa?

Where do i go? Do you know of a good place that sells elegant simple 3baya no khabba no mess no fuss yet not plain and with a price tag of 100 KD or less? Help!!!

P.S. yes the black blob in the picture is me modelling my trusty 3bat ras… fourme knows i look damn good in that 3baya :p

    oh this zone is mine!
    as described; super elegant 3baya go c 3abat Najd in AlRaya, ma ra7 telqen shoqol anthaf minhum, u can do ur daily simple one, and another for weddings, o itha sarat waaauid qalya etkon 120KD
    another place for simple everyday 3bat check AlShahad in jabriya, ull find it next to shanakel the toys place, range;40-60KD
    for 7aj and 3omra, check the plain 3abayas from AlMot7ajba in the avenues phaseII, costs 31KD chena. but itha tben light material for the 7ar moot times, go c 3abyat AlSe3eed in old mubarekeya! 3indah qmash 5afeef wauid good 7q kad o mad
    there u go 🙂

        mubarkeya e5aleshum in 10 days
        also met7ajba in a week

        najd maybe more than a month ;p
        bs soo worth it, soo elegant!
        and u can cutomize ur own, choosing the pattern and colors, they have beautiful catalogues to choose from


  6. Well, for plain yet very nice fabric everyday or 3umra 7aj use I’d go for als3eed wether it’s 3abat ras o 3abayat jatef price from 25- to 40 i think very moderate pricing and excellent quality of fabric.
    For kash5a 3abaya’s you have Al-Shahd in jabriya next to shanakel they have a variety as well from fancy to everyday and 3umra use..
    and you can custom make your 3abaya according to your own prefernce of fabric designs and details but a bit on the pricy side..
    And you got Hanayen and Al-Mit7ajba in the avenues I usually get wedding abaya’s but I ask for very simple designs which costs around 100 kd..

    You can check 3abayaat AL-Shahad n Jabriya, near Al-Shanakel store, very class & high quality, it can stay with u 4 ever.


  8. the decay of the 3abaya depends on it’s quality.

    in our supermarket(Qurtoba) *midget* mall might I add they have a good 3abayat store, located upstairs. According to parent.
