Let’s talk abaya fabrics

We are the abaya fabric specialists. We live and breath abayas...period. Come talk to us about anything from jet blacks to gorgeous dyed. How about silky crepes or elegant jacquards? We've got it all.

About Us
About Us

Uniquely Specialized and Passionately Dedicated to Everything Abaya

Established in 1900, we have been dedicated and passionate about textiles and fashion fabrics for over 120 years. We’ve called Dubai and the U.A.E. our home since 1970. Our love for fabrics and fashion has made our commitment to delivering textiles to our customers a constant joy. We work across the Middle East with garment manufacturers, designers, fashion labels, and retailers.

Abaya is a symbol of tradition, respect, humility, identity, and individuality. A representation of the culture and the values of the Arab people. Its global recognition and adoption by so many diverse cultures shows the global admiration of Arab values and traditions.

At Karim Al-Dar, our mission is to honor the identity of the Abaya and of the traditions and values that it represents. Everyday, we tune into international fashion trends, work with our partners to develop and curate new trendy products, and challenge ourselves to satisfy our customers in new and exciting ways.

We focus on generating socially positive and responsible business practices by working with our partners to establish responsible supply networks. We have built our company on the values of tradition, trust, integrity and accountability. Our clients choose to work with us based on these core principles.

Karim Al-Dar Trading Company is a member of the Al-Dar Textile & Apparel Group.
