Hello everybody! We are Tunisian pupils at the Secondary School Cité Mahrajene,Tataouine. We are wearing some traditional costumes of the region where we live. Enjoy browsing the galleries!
| Every community has its own
traditions and culture. I'm from Tataouine, a town in the deep south of
Tunisia. Until today, many people in my town still wear traditional costumes
in everyday life or when there are religious celebrations or when we celebrate
a wedding ceremony.
Men usually wear a traditional
costume which we call a "Jebba".
It is a long and large costume. People put it on over a shirt called "Farmla"and
baggy trousers called "Serwal Arbi".
These trousers are large on the thigh but tight just under the knee. Men
usually wear this costume, which is usually a white one, in summer or
when we celebrate an occasion such as religious feasts: "Aid El-Kebir"
or "Aid El-Fittr".
Women seem luckier than men
concerning the costumes they wear. In fact, they still wear traditional
costumes such as "Melhafa"
