Ahaaaa ok, i was just wondering about the origin of its design, what people it comes from and do you know if the colours mean anything? some are very colourful and others just dark black?
The burqa originated in Afghanistan, but some very strict Muslim women have taken to wearing niqab, which is the black cloak with the eye slit, which is of Middle Eastern origin.
And of course, in some parts of India, hijab is just a scarf draped loosely over the hair.
As I said, I'm open to correction on this...
