Burka-inspired silver necklace by Mazayen
This collection is inspired by Omani burqa. Omani burqa used to be worn as a mask by Bedouin women to cover the face as a protection tool from the sun and sand. Oman is located in the Arab Peninsula and the Arab Peninsula is practically one big sandbox. For the people who still aren’t convinced and wonder why men don’t wear it if the Omani burqa is for protection: actually they have their own “burqa”, the Mosar or Ghutra–also known as a turban. My mother and grandmother wear burqa. It’s not for protection any more. It’s for fashion. Since I don’t wear burqa, wanted people to know more about it. That’s why I created this collection. Here are some images of this collection.
