If you live in the East and have reasonable warm weather for most of the year, then the abaya is perfect for you, as most Dubai abayas are made from fabrics that are suitable for warm climates. Most of the Dubai abayas are made from Lexus, Internet or Nidha fabric.
Lexus – This fabric is soft, woven and has a matt finish with a lovely drape.
Internet – This is a thicker fabric with a closer weave.
Nidha – This fabric comes in different quality. The higher the quality of the fabric the higher the price of the abaya. More expensive abayas are usually made from this fabric. It has a slight sheen to it and a slippery surface.
If you live in the West, the abaya is fine for the summer, but for the colder weather, it might not be suitable. If you want to still wear the abaya in the colder weather, then look around a lot of abaya stores and online boutiques are now meeting the needs of the women in the West and selling abaya designs made from thicker fabrics suitable for the colder climate. Wear thicker layers underneath the abaya and add a long woolen coat on top and a pure wool or pashmina scarf around the neck for more coziness.
