The Treasure Hunt

Shobha Iyer

Bedouins are Arabs and desert nomads who hail from and continue to live primarily in the Arabian peninsula and the Middle East and North Africa. They have traditionally lived in the arid steppe regions along the margins of rain-fed cultivation. Bedouin means "desert people." The basic "dress" is an enormous tob or thobe. Usually in dark blue with light bluebands of decoration and decorated seams. Bedouin women in Northern Palestine, Jordon and Syria wore a blue or black thobe or shirsh with long tight sleeves and a long neck opening. And this is what I have tried to capture- their attire!
