No Idea 2 (Dubedu)

AK has a photo of a Bedu thob'ob from the Tareq Rajab Museum in Kuwait, in similar colours to the thob on the left - but about 3m long! I don't have anything on the blue thob, but I love those tassels (Urgh - flies - urgh. Tassels are functional as well as fun.)

AK identifies something very similar to this (black with white panels and this style of embroidery) as perhaps coming from the Harb of the Hijaz, one of the mountain ranges on the KSA side of the Red Sea coast
