Moroccan Men Djellabas

Djellaba /dʒɨˈlɑːbə/ (Moroccan Arabic: جلابة, Berber name: Aselham)[1] is a Moroccan traditional long of middle-eastern origin, loose-fitting unisex outer robe with full sleeves worn in the Maghreb region of North Africa and in Arabic-speaking countries along the Mediterranean.
Traditionally, djellabas are made of wool in different shapes and colors, although now a days lightweight cotton djellabas have become popular. Traditional djellabas are generally made of two types of material, cotton for summer wear and coarse wool for the winter. The wool is typically obtained from sheep living in the surrounding mountains.Almost all djellabas of both styles (male or female) include a baggy hood called a qob (Arabic: قب) that comes to a point at the back. The hood is important for both sexes, as it protects the wearer from the sun, and in earlier times was used as a defence against sand being blown into the wearer’s face by strong desert winds
