Tarchībah: (Arabic: tarkībah: to fix or add on). In the UAE the term refers to ready-made silver embroidered dress parts, mainly the neckline (alj) or sleeve cuffs (yūl) on garments, imported from India before the 1970s. Because of its high value, it was transferred from a garment to another (jal), or its silver was melted and sold when needed. The letter (kāf) in some Arabic regions is colloquially pronounced (cha). The term is also more widely used elsewhere to refer to any added applications such as ruffles or belts.
