Abstract :
In the 1950s, an American dentist working for Aramco in Saudi Arabia was given a complete man’s winter outfit, which is now part of the collection of the Textile Research Centre in Leiden, The Netherlands. The outfit includes a winter gown (thawb), and matching jacket (damir), a winter cloak (bisht), a white cap (taqiyya), a red and white headcloth (ghoutra) and a headrope ('aqal).
