"The djellaba is a long, loose-fitting outer robe with full sleeves. Traditionally, djellabas are made of wool in different shapes and colours, but lightweight cotton djellabas have now become popular. Traditionally, djellabas reached down to the ground but lightweight djellabas are somewhat slimmer and shorter. Men often wear a light-coloured djellaba sometimes along with a traditional fez (tarbouche) and soft leather babouche slippers for celebrations and weddings. Almost all djellabas of both styles (male or female) include a baggy hood 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, it was used as a defense against sand being blown into the wearer's face by strong desert winds. 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 in the surrounding mountains." - Wikipedia contributors. (2022d, December 18). Djellaba. Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Djellaba
