I’m not a “darra3a” person. I don’t wear it all except in Ramadan & it started 3 years ago because of gatherings & gerge’an parties! And to be honest, these days, girls who are selling darra3as in exhibitions are very very exaggerating in their prices! Like why do I have to pay KD 150/200 for a darra3a that I’ll wear once or twice? WHY y3ni? Okay I get it it’s hectic, the prices of fabrics are not cheap and so but it doesn’t make sense!!
Above is a picture of the fabric I’ve purchased recently & it was around KD 22/- add the tailors fee, it might reach around KD 15/20. So the total of one darra3a will be between KD 40/45 (depending on the fabric ofcourse). Now if they’d sell it for KD 80 or 90, or even 100 it would be somehow reasonable because they want to profit from their hard work! But to exceed that limit in an unreasonable way, then that’s just too much!
I was talking about the fabrics bought from Kuwait. But if the fabric was bought from abroad then okay, i can understand if the prices were over!
So, with me buying my own fabric & dealing with my own tailor. i saved around KD 50 or something like that! Beside, I might turn out to be a huge oval ball in July, I decided to do my own darra3a so that it will be adjustable when I reach that stage. & most importantly COMFY🙂
