100% cotton material. Red and White. Size 44" x 44" (inches). The red-and-white keffiyeh is worn throughout the Middle East region as well as in Somalia, but is most strongly associated with Jordan, where it is known as shmagh mhadab. The Jordanian keffiyeh has cotton decorative strings on the sides. It is believed that the bigger these strings, the more value it has and the higher a persons status. It has been used by Bedouins throughout the centuries and was used as a symbol of honour and tribal identification.

Traditional desert Arab head dress, which evolved from turbans in ancient times. Essential for protecting the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and face from sand. Can also be used as a neck warmer or hand towel. Scarf is high quality stitch. Worn by soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan and abroad. Retains heat and absorbs sweat in warm/hot conditions. Imported. The keffiyeh is also known as a shmagh, shemagh or yashmag, a ghutra or a hatta, and is a traditional headdress of Arab men, made of a square of cloth ("scarf"), folded and wrapped in various styles around the head. It is commonly found in arid climate areas to provide protection from direct sun exposure, as well as for occasional use in protecting the mouth and eyes from blown dust and sand. Worn and known by Palestenians.
