A thawb or khameez (Arabic: ثوب) is an ankle-length garment, usually with long sleeves, similar to a robe. It is typically worn by men in the Arabian Peninsula and some surrounding countries. It is normally made of cotton, but heavier materials such as sheep's wool can also be used, especially in colder climates. Alternative spellings include Thoub and Thobe. It may also be known as dishdashah (also dishdasha) and in more colloquial English dishdash.
