The French Men’s Handball team received a unique token of intercultural friendship yesterday, when they were presented with complete sets of the elegant Qatari national dress by Al Siddiqi Holding, through its home-grown Qatari Men’s fashion brand Al Shal.
The French team members – both players and support team composed of close to 30 people – received the full set of traditional Qatari attire that is composed of a Thob (long tunic), a Ghotra (local head dress), a Serwal (traditional trouser), a Taqia (skull-cap), and an Iqal (rope).
The attire was completely made to measure in Qatar by Al Shal. Mahmood Almahmood, director of Al Shal, helped the players to dress up and explained how each piece of the outfit should be worn.
Al Siddiqi Holding has been an ‘Official Partner’ of the 24th Men’s Handball World Championship, providing official uniforms and traditional Qatari attire such as thobes, abayas and shaylas for the team-members and volunteers of the mega sporting event.
