Clothing for Women
The clothing for women is mostly base off of religion. Many women wear either a hijab (a covering for the neck and head) or a niquab (a covering of the face and head); however it is not uncommon to see an Egyptian women without a head covering. Due to the heat, many of their garments are light weight and loose fitting to help keep them cool.
Clothing for Men
There are no religious restriction for men's attire in Egypt. There are some devout Muslims in Egypt who do not wear any clothing that clings to the body. These devout Muslims and usually men of the lower classes wear a galabiya (loose fitting ankle length robe) along with a turban, skullcap or fez. The kaftan (ankle length coat with large sleeves,worn belted round the waist) is worn over the galabiya and is often worn by more religious men as well. However, most men today wear more western type clothing. This includes business suits while at work and trousers and short sleeved shirts for every day wear.

Sebou
A Sebou is an old Egyptian tradition which is celebrated on the seventh day after a baby's birth. This is celebrated by Copts and Muslims alike and for both girl and boy babies. Some of the traditions of Sebou include gently shaking and rolling the newborn in a flour sifter, and clanging pots and pans. The rolling of the baby reportedly dates back to pharaonic times when newborns were shaken and rolled to shake off any evil spirits and loud noises were made to scare bad spirits away.
