Al-Ghurair City information
If seeing all those flowing robes has made you want your own checked gutra (white headcloth worn by men in the Gulf States), grab yours at this ageing mall. The place to shop for national dress, it offers stylish abayas (full-length black robes worn by women) and shaylas (headscarves), quality leather sandals, and dishdashas (men’s shirt-dresses) in browns and greys (popular for winter). There are also some contemporary fashion-conscious outlets here, including French Connection, Mexx and Guess, as well as some excellent specialty shops selling everything from Arabic jewellery to handwoven rugs.
