About Keffiyeh Scarfs

As a garment born in harsh desert conditions, the keffiyeh scarf offers protection in the most inclement of inclement weather — however, it has also garnered well-deserved attention for its unique, stylish look. Also called a shemagh, this distinct patterned Palestinian scarf has been traditionally worn by men in the region to cover the eyes, nose, and mouth in the blazing sun, gusty wind, and dry sand. Made from 100 percent cotton, they are breathable, durable, and comfortable, making them ideal for use while hiking, fishing, snowboarding, skiing, or snowshoeing. However, they are versatile as fashionable accessories for both men and women. They are square in shape and can be tied in countless ways to cover the head and neck, or can simply be worn as a loose scarf to add a breezy touch to any outfit. These Arab scarves typically feature a distinctive woven pattern resembling check marks. The pattern originates in ancient Mesopotamia, making the keffiyeh a perfect celebration of the region's rich cultural history.
