Wish Somalia had traditional clothes day

Marshall D Abdi

Know you’re place peasant
Where everyone dressed in their culture clothes

noticed Anglo-Saxon countries don’t really have traditional clothes nor celebrate it unlike here in Scandinavia where it’s big thing for us

you would see farah and halimo with those clothes in 17 May in the street celebrating it.

Noticed Scandinavian Somalis are really liberal compared to other Somali dispora

btw here it’s their traditional clothes

Macawis Aint even ours. Man we should have devoloped on our clothes like those black khamiis back in the days
You sure? You can't really call macaawis something that belongs to one ethnic since it is so widespread in Arabia mainly the south as well as south-east Asia and there are many speculations on where it came from

It is ours, also we had different clothing types but we are super bad at recording our history.

Literally google "somali traditional clothes men"

I will share some pics (ignore suits in one of them)

Some are tribal specific right?

I have no clue, but honestly many clothes in history like suits were once specifically for nobles of a certain area but became standard across europe.

Even if some of these are tribal specific we should embrace them enmasse if they are halal.

There's indigenous macawis which was historically produced locally, al umari kinda gave a reference to it.
The modern one is foreign tho, Indonesian macawis lol.
