Abstract:
Several hypotheses have been tested by questionnaire survey to measure the preservation of traditional dress among the people of Kuwait. The results of this questionnaire are included in this thesis. The economic growth in the area of the Arabian Peninsula has changed the whole nation to a Western society with the exception of Saudi Arabia. People have abandoned their culture including the traditional dress to harmonize with western society. This research makes an effort to safeguard the Arabian culture by incorporating heritage into an educational proposal with particular reference to clothing and textiles curriculum.
