The wazar is a special part of the dressing "uniform" of the Omani men. It covers the lower part of the body. The wazar is generally made of cotton and its color is white. In the south of the country, other fibers are used, and because of weather conditions, they tend to use a thicker and darker wazar than is used in central and northern Oman. The wazar is wrapped, not tied, around the waist and its length usually falls to the mid-calf or longer. The wazar should never hang out from under a dishdasha except when a dishdasha is pulled up (usually done to keep it clean).
