    Locals of the Eastern Province boast the most beautiful forms of dresses, which reflect the prestige and elegance of the region. Men’s dress consists of loose garments that cover the body up to the lower leg. Dangling at the neck of the thobe dress is a tuft of threads called “krkoshah.” In addition, men wear a head cloth called the “ghutra” or “shimmag,” which has white or striped triangles. On the top of “ghutra,” a black rope-like doubled cord called the “igal” is worn in order to hold the “ghutra” in place. During winter, a cloak made of sheepskin or wool is worn over the thobe. As for women, they wear a full-length loose gown embroidered with silk and gold. The headscarf is made of black cloth decorated with golden threads with an opening for the face in the front, while the rest of the headdress lays loose on the shoulders and back.
    Given the location of the Eastern Province in the Gulf, and the nature of the work its people do, like diving and fishing, the folklore of the region resembles the maritime folk art of the Arabian Gulf countries, like Kuwait and Bahrain. This type of art is characterized by a number of folk dances and songs with some variation in the number of drums and their beats.
