Mar 24, 2022

John Lewis has become the first major UK department store to stock Men’s Arabian Thobes.

John Lewis & Partners, the famous British brand which first opened its doors in 1864 In Oxford Street, London, has become the first major UK retailer to stock Men’s Arabian and Islamic Thobes. John Lewis has signed up Islamic Impressions as the supplier of this Middle Eastern fashion staple, with the range launching this month, in the run up to Ramadan.

The Thobe (or Jubbah) is similar to robes also worn by others from the Abrahamic traditions, a long ankle-length shirt worn both formally and casually. Islamic Impressions range of Thobe’s are inspired by traditional middle eastern menswear, but with a fashionable twist. Usually white in colour for the hot arrid climate of the middle east, we have taken the traditional silhouette and worked the designs and colours to appeal to contemporary audiences.

John Lewis are offering a range of Islamic Impressions Thobes as part of its drive to onboard diverse fashion brands and attract new demographics to its ecommerce site. The John Lewis Partnership is the UK’s largest employee owned business and parent company of two cherished retail brands - John Lewis and Waitrose, which are owned in Trust by 80,000 Partners.

Established in 2004, Islamic Impressions is the UK’s largest and most recognised Islamic Lifestyle brand. Islamic Impressions exists to bring a high street feel to the Islamic Lifestyle shopping experience.

Islamic Impressions range of Thobes are available now on, or at one of Islamic Impressions department stores, as part of our Ramadan 2022 collection.
