What is a kandora

The kandora is a traditional Arabic garment for men. It is made of 1 piece of fabric and therefore has no sewn-on sleeves. The kandora is very popular in the Arab countries and has a very practical function, especially during hot days, namely cooling. In addition, it of course also has a covering function which makes it very suitable for the performance of Islamic prayers. It has a very covering function when the man is in the kneeling position (Sujud).

Most kandoras are about above the man's ankle. The kandora should not be worn sharply on the ground. A kandora has no pockets on one or two sides but an opening to access the pants for personal care or to access your trouser pockets. This is unknown to customers, so it is easy to think of a manufacturing defect.
