The Keffiyeh has long been a symbol of the Palestinian struggle and it’s not uncommon to see activists and protestors wrapped and sheathed with the Keffiyeh. More than just a political statement, several designers such as Givenchy, Cecile Copenhagen and Aziz Bekkaoui have integrated the Keffiyeh prints as a fashion statement.
I have loved Keffiyeh prints for as long as I remember and I was so excited that I managed to find this print in a kimono cardigan-ish style. I was rummaging through one of the stalls at the Global Village at the Kuwait pavilion and found them in various other colors and styles, but this one was my favorite.
The kimono-digan, yes, I’m creating a new word, is super light and easy to throw on. You can definitely play it up with brighter colors but I wanted to keep this B&W printed Keffiyeh top within a neutral range so I accessorized my hijab and handbag in earthy tones.
I think that as a hijaabi, it’s important to focus on certain elements. I wanted my Keffiyeh kimonodigan to be the main focus, so I made sure my hijaab was a solid print in a neutral color.
