Threads of History


This short documentary raises the question: what is the traditional dress of the Emirati woman? The film goes back in history to follow the evolution of women’s clothing from the pre-oil era until the modern day, by comparing different garments that were worn at different times. Threads of History aims to help better understand Emirati women’s fashion through exploring the United Arab Emirate’s culture.
