Bahraini Women conservatively wear a daffah a long, loose-fitting black gown. The Men traditionally wear a Thobe a loose, long-sleeved, ankle-length garment. The Thobe also includes a Ghutra a square scarf made of cotton, Keffiyeh a white knitted cap under the Ghutra, and finally a Agal a long, thick, black cord worn on top of the Ghutra to hold it in place.
