The region in which al-Madinah sits was dominated by the great bedouin tribe of Harb. They conducted the caravan trade between central Najd, al-Madinah, Makkah and Jeddah. Typical Harbi dresses are decorated with buttons and embroidery, with heavy patchwork on the hem. Blue cotton cloth was a particular Harbi trademark. Coins were often used as jewelry, as on this burqu‘.
