I always admire the traditions and culture of an Arab civilisation 💓 especially the majlis. Here the white rectangular cushion majilis on the floor are for the couples to chitchat with have tea and snacks ☕🍲🧀🍎 Majilis ( place of sitting) in Arabic is used to describe the place of social gatherings ( friends , families ) during sunset with hot black tea, dates, snacks and chitchat.Most homes in the gulf have majilis.
In olden days majilis were tent then it became a covered room with Palm fronds. The mats were eventually replaced by carpets handmade from camel , goats sheeps.
At a later stage, traditional Arab 'Tekay' (Arabic cushions) were introduced with a long rectangular day mattress that covers the corners of Majlis that Emiratis called 'Doshak', as guests could sit comfortably for hours.
