The Burqa'a is a traditional way for women to cover up in the United Arab Emirates. This accessory is usually worn by married women to show that they are married and not single. It is made of delicate fabric and is worn over the face.
Burqa'a makers, who are called Quraizah Burqa'a, have been making a living for generations by sewing burqas. This skill has been passed down from Emirati mother to daughter.
