In the above picture, what may be "inappropriate" is the use of the fabric as material for an off-shoulder gown. This is in contrast with Tau Sug customs and traditions. This is not the proper way of wearing the siyabit, which should be worn according to what is right as Tau Sug and as Muslims. Is it wrong? Let’s ask ourselves. The Tau Sug are neither anti-development nor are they anti-commercialization of the fabric. But customs should be respected and carefully followed when using it.
PS. Traditionally, if the siyabit is shaped like a square, it is called a pis. If shaped as a rectangle, it is called a kandit. What I’m pointing out in this post is not the pis, but the siyabit. As with the dress, I don't know. It is just a tight, off-shoulder gown made from the siyabit fabric. It is a Tau Sug fabric. In terms of cultural identity of the fabric, Tau Sug comes first before the term taken from the Spanish King that came into being (as mentioned by Ms. Catriona Gray).
