The women of A' Dakhliyah dress in a similar style to the women of Al Sharqiyah. In Ibra, a women’s market opened in 1990, enabling women from surrounding areas to buy and sell clothing, as such neighboring regions have had a homogenizing influence on local styles. The women of this region wear trousers with the same style of embroidery and dishdashas2 in similar fabrics and colours to those mentioned in the Al Sharqiyah section. The trousers are of a slightly wider fit at the hem than those worn in Al Sharqiyah.
