The Power Is In Your Abaya

By  | 

Calling all fashionistas of the Arab world, what if I told you you can charge your phone in the pockets of your own abaya?! Emirati fashion designer Manaal Al Hammadi brings ultra-chic, solar-powered abayas to the world of wearable tech.

Using nanotechnology the abayas are fitted with micro solar panels in the front pockets and sleeves of the garment (right where the sun hits the most) so you can charge your phone on the go without having to worry about finding an electric socket near you. Forget about power banks and having to carry your charger every where you go.

The solar-powered abayas were showcased at Solar Expo during the World Energy Summit at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in January. If you’re looking to get your hands on one of these high-tech statement abayas before Ramadan, visit The Fashion Vault in Sunset Mall, Dubai.
