It is known as Dishdasha in the Levant region and in countries like Oman and UAE, it is known by the name of Kandura. Also, some people refer to it is a Jubba and Suriyah thobe.

The word Thobe is an origin of an Arabic phrase which means ‘garment’. The garment is available in various colors and designs.
