In Attire

A Yemeni dagger is called a Jambiya.  In our culture, we use this at weddings, parties and holidays.  We also used it with dancing and there are so many types of Jambiya's in Yemen with different sizes and prices.  It was made in the 18th Century. Around 90% of Yemeni men wear Jambiya on their belt at weddings, on holidays, or with their kids.  It is famous and important to Yemeni families.  It's made of two or more gold discs of copper. In Yemen we have 4 of them.  Also In Yemen, the styles of Jambiya's differ remarkably from region to region, but the funny thing about it is when someone wear it he think he is like a king.
