How to wrap a Toub/Lafaya & Melhfa

Once you know how to tie the Toub, it becomes very easy to tie. 

What you will need:

  • An undergarment e.g. a dress
  • A light weight, flowy fabric at least 4m x 1m in dimension 
  • Safety pins (optional)
  • A clean surface to place excess fabric, while tying the Toub / Laffaya

The principle for Toubs & Laffayas:

Wrap one end of the fabric around your waist. Where the two fabric meet, tie it to your back or side. This should leave you with one continuous length. Bring the continuous length over your shoulder and wrap it so it looks like a veil.

iIf your fabric is too long for you, you can fold it at the top before wrapping around your waist.

If your fabric is too wide, you can wrap it a few times around your waist, before wrapping around your head
